Reserves spark Tar Heels after disastrous start to second half


Roy Williams had seen enough. The North Carolina coach was fed up with his team's lackadaisical play to start the second half against No. 2 Duke on Tuesday night, a dreadful run of six turnovers in as many possessions that helped the Blue Devils build a 17-point lead. He pulled the Tar Heels' starters in favor of the so-called "Blue Team" of five reserves that included a freshman who had played just 4 minutes in the past month. And as Williams chastised the starters on the bench, the message was clear: play hard or don't play at all. (Charlotte Observer)
