UNC-UCLA Roy Williams Postgame Quotes

Roy Williams: “We shot the ball better tonight and we didn’t turn it over. We rebounded it better and we caught UCLA on a night where their shots didn’t go in the basket. When you look down there and we had 31 points off turnovers to their six, that’s a huge, huge factor in the game. We made eight threes today and didn’t make nearly as many last night. And we made free throws today.” (Inside Carolina)

Quick thoughts from UNC's win over UCLA

Roy Williams changed his starting lineup after the loss to Butler, inserting Nate Britt, Isaiah Hicks and Joel James to play alongside Marcus Paige and Justin Jackson. That meant wing J.P. Tokoto, forward Brice Johnson and Kennedy Meeks began the UCLA game on the bench, a sure sign that Williams didn't like the effort against Butler. (Fayetteville Observer)

Pack vs. Heels: Anything can happen

The rivalry between UNC and NC State means different things to different people, especially to those playing the game. UNC quarterback Marquise Williams said he considers N.C. State its biggest rival in football. “I think this is the bigger rivalry,” Williams said. “When you think of Duke and Carolina, you think of basketball. I think with football, State and Carolina is where the rivalry is at." (Durham Herald-Sun)

Recap & Analysis: UNC 78 UCLA 56

The answer to the question of whether the Tar Heels could bounce back from the loss to Butler was a resounding "affirmative" as UNC dismantled UCLA 78-56 in the loser's bracket of the Battle 4 Atlantis. If there was any question as to how seriously Roy Williams took the lack of rebounding effort on Wednesday it disappeared when UNC's startling lineup was revealed. (Tar Heel Blog)

Bahama Breeze: No. 5 UNC beats No. 22 UCLA 78-56

Roy Williams blamed himself for his team not coming out with more intensity in an upset loss to Butler Wednesday. The No. 5 Tar Heels showed more fire out of the gate in an 78-56 win over No. 22 UCLA on Thanksgiving night in the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament. North Carolina played with more energy in transition and played defense with more purpose. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Insider Q&A: UNC vs N.C. State

Definitely have to start with Jacoby Brissett first. The majority of last year's team that went 3-9 is back, now with a much more talented quarterback, and it's shown how much of a difference that makes. (Carolina Blue)

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - UCLA

Butler was very good at preventing Carolina's transition opportunities. UCLA was more willing to run with the Tar Heels, and it allowed Carolina to look much more comfortable in the offense. The Bruins also contributed to the offense by coughing up 23 turnovers. UNC led the points off turnovers category by a whopping margin of 31-6. (GoHeels.com)

Caleb Pressley enjoying new role with UNC

A year ago, Caleb Pressley was a backup quarterback who barely saw the field. Now he’s one of the most recognizable figures on the UNC sideline – he’s the guy in the NFL jerseys, UNC’s self-proclaimed Supervisor of Morale. “Backup quarterbacks don’t get a lot of attention, but now I have more attention than I’ve ever had,” Pressley said. A chance to study abroad put all of this in motion. (WRAL Sports Fan)
