Clemson shares kind gesture in honor of the late Eric Montross

The UNC men’s basketball team traveled to South Carolina for a conference game against the Clemson Tigers.

Often in college sports, programs find ways to share their respect and love for their opponent. Clemson did just that in a heartfelt gesture by honoring the late Eric Montross, who sadly passed away in December.

The Tigers honored the Tar Heel legend Montross, by leaving a note at the visiting radio seat along with a vase of flowers. Play-by-play announcer Jones Angell shared a photo of his broadcast location highlighting the kind gesture.

Big Grit loss has had a significant impact on the Tar Heel community and around the sports world. It’s beautiful to see different programs find a way to honor the UNC legend, keeping his name and legacy alive.

Monstross played for UNC from 1990 to 1994, helping the Tar Heels win a National Championship in the 92-93 season.
