Dewey Burke Is Awesome

Apparently since graduating from UNC, Dewey "Biscuits" Burke runs a series of basketball camps during the summer and works with individual players on a regular basis. Cool stuff. I did find the description of Burke's senior season lacking however:

In the 2006-07 season, Dewey played in 21 games for the Tar Heels' team that went 33 and 6, were the ACC Regular Season and Tournament Champions, were ranked #1 in the country for several weeks, were seeded #1 in the East regional and eventually made it to the NCAA Elite Eight, losing in overtime to Georgetown. During the season, Burke's popularity soared. Through a promotion with the fast-food company Bojangles, when UNC scored over 100 points in a home game, everyone with a ticket stub could go to Bojangles for two sausage biscuits for $1. Burke put the Tar Heels over 100 on three different occasions, and he will always affectionately be remembered as "Biscuits." He started in the final home game of the year against arch-rival Duke in the nationally televised game that clinched the ACC Regular Season title. Once again he received the Foy Roberson Award, one of only seven players in North Carolina history to win the award twice.

Good but it should have included this:

Dewey is also credited with saving the life of Duke player Gerald Henderson by stepping in to restrain Tyler Hansbrough following Henderson breaking Hansbrough's nose with a flagrant foul late in the UNC-Duke game on Senior Day in Chapel Hill.
