Price named ACC legend

Georgia Tech basketball great Mark Price will be honored at the ACC tournament as part of the league’s 2013 class of legends. Price, who led the Yellow Jackets’ resurgence under coach Bobby Cremins, is one of just four players in ACC history to be named first- or second-team all-conference four times. (North Carolina’s Tyler Hansbrough, Virginia’s Jeff Lamp and Duke’s Johnny Dawkins are the others.)

Price was also a three-time All-America, a member of the 1994 U.S. world championship team and a four-time NBA all-star. He also holds the NBA career record for free-throw percentage (90.4 percent).
