Those who knew legendary coach Dean Smith best attended the late North Carolina coach's private memorial service on Thursday.

Among them: Duke's Mike Krzyzewski, who paid a subtle tribute to Smith by wearing the colors of Duke's rival: Carolina Blue.

Smith, who won 879 games and two national championships in his career, died on Saturday night. His legacy is a remarkable one, and within the world of basketball, his connections are immense.

Per the Associated Press, some of those who attended the services on Thursday included former Tar Heel players Brad Daugherty, Jerry Stackhouse, Rasheed Wallace, Eric Montross. Others, such as former UNC coach Bill Guthridge and current Tar Heels coach Roy Williams, as well former Georgetown coach John Thompson, were also on hand at Binkley Baptist Church, Smith's longtime house of worship.

A massive public memorial for Smith is scheduled to be held in the building named after him, UNC's Dean Dome, on Feb. 22.
