UNC-Robert Morris Roy Williams Postgame Quotes

Roy Williams: "I thought we were much more active defensively tonight than we were Friday night; that seems like a long time ago. I think we turned those turnovers or those missed shots into the break. I thought we also executed much better against their zone, we moved it better tonight. Our big guys can pass the ball, and we’ve done a nice job of that in practice." (Inside Carolina)

UNC starting frontcourt play leads to 103-59 victory

Tar Heels’ starting center Kennedy Meeks still ranks his outputs against Louisville and Florida State a year ago as superior, but Meeks displayed a combination of aggressiveness and efficient scoring against Robert Morris that his coaches have been looking for on a consistent basis. It also didn’t hurt that UNC power forward Brice Johnson had one of his best games in a Tar Heels uniform. (Carolina Blue)

Everything clicks as UNC routs Robert Morris

UNC coach Roy Williams got all of his guys into the game against Robert Morris on Sunday. A Joel Berry 3-pointer put the Tar Heels past the century mark. That was Coleman on the assist, and his free throw made the final score 103-59 in the Dean E. Smith Center. Nothing to it for No. 6 UNC. “We're more gifted than Robert Morris,” Williams said. The Tar Heels out-glassed Robert Morris 49-31. (Durham Herald-Sun)

UNC's passing thwarts Robert Morris' zone

J.P. Tokoto's identity on the North Carolina basketball team is fluid. Some games he's primarily a scorer. In other games he's a defender. Sometimes he's the hype man, revving up his team and the crowd with gravity-defying dunks. With a career-high 10 assists in Sunday night's 103-59 win against Robert Morris, Tokoto was the facilitator. (Carolina Blue)

Lucas: All About Ball

For a couple of hours, everything was perfect and the Final Four seemed tangible and maybe J.P. Tokoto really has transformed into Ed Cota. It was the kind of night when everything seemed to go just right. The Tar Heels provided biscuits for the crowd and at one point I looked over after one of Carolina’s 29 assists and Scott Smith, Dean Smith’s son, was thanking the passer. (GoHeels.com)

Tar Heels Effective Against RMU's Zone

On Sunday, UNC attacked the Colonials’ zone through the air, on the ground and via the high post. The Tar Heels made decisive, sharp passes over the top of the zone from the perimeter time and time again in scoring their first 13 field goals off 10 assists en route to building a 39-25 lead. “I thought we executed much better against their zone,” Roy Williams told reporters. (Inside Carolina)

UNC Owns Offensive Glass in Win Over Robert Morris

No. 6 North Carolina’s frontcourt was able to capitalize on plenty of second-chance opportunities as the Tar Heels cruised to a 103-59 win over Robert Morris on Sunday night. Throughout the contest, UNC’s front line was able to impose its will on Robert Morris’ defenders around the basket. The Tar Heels finished the game with 20 offensive rebounds that resulted in 20 second-chance points. (Inside Carolina)

Recap & Analysis: UNC 103 Robert Morris 59

Any questions? Coming off a choppy and uneven performance in the opening win against NC Central on Friday, UNC asserted itself early then put the hammer down in the second half to take a resounding 103-59 win over Robert Morris. UNC's success in this game was fueled primarily by the play of the two starting post players, Brice Johnson and Kennedy Meeks. (Tar Heel Blog)

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - Robert Morris

What a joy to watch Carolina pass the ball on Sunday night. The Tar Heels racked up 29 assists on 36 field goals, many of the spectacular variety. Robert Morris tried to utilize a similar zone to what had been effective for North Carolina Central on Friday night, but the Tar Heels dissected it with quick ball movement, changing sides of the floor and finding the open man.
