Tough Times

Halfway through Carolina's final pre-practice conditioning test Wednesday evening in the Smith Center, something occurred to Roy Williams. The Tar Heel head coach was watching the second of three groups run their sixth "33" of the day. A 33 is simple: players run the length of the basketball court, touch the line, run back, and then repeat the process twice more. It's essentially six times crossing the court and the conditioning drill requires that it be completed in less than 33 seconds in 12 separate repetitions. About 16 seconds into the group's sixth dash, Williams shouted, "Hey David, this is your last running test!" (Tar Heel Blue)
