Former Knicks Head Coach and General Manager Isiah Thomas made his College coaching debut last night against No. 6 North Carolina. Forward Deon Thompson netted 20 points as UNC downed Florida International 88-72 in the 2k Sports Classic. The defending national champion Tar Heels (1-0), despite 25 turnovers, dominated the undersized Golden Panthers with little trouble. North Carolina shot 56 percent and led the entire way to kick off its centennial season against Thomas, who took over the long-struggling program in April.
Thomas’ debut came on the same day his 86-year-old mother, Mary, had open-heart surgery in Chicago.
Isiah and the Panthers resume play Friday at Monmouth.
