From 1949 to 1960 the Dixie Classic basketball tournament was held each year in Reynolds Coliseum. It pitted North Carolina’s Big Four against some of the country’s elite programs of that era. 1958 is considered one of the best since it hosted 4 of the top 6 teams in the country at that time. N.C. State won that year, and totaled 7 wins in the tournament’s history. In the 12 year span of the Dixie Classic, no team outside the state of North Carolina won the tournament.
