A collegiate player for four seasons at North Carolina (1973-77) under legendary coach Dean Smith, Kuester helped the Tar Heels win two ACC Championships and make four postseason appearances (three NCAA Tournament berths and one NIT bid). As a senior, he was voted as the team’s best defensive player for the second consecutive season while earning ACC Tournament and NCAA East Regional Most Valuable Player accolades.
