How Roy Williams ‘epitomizes Carolina-ness’ with his distinctive fashion sense

The jacket is five or six years old now, and it’s the one piece Roy Williams wears that elicits the strongest reactions. Some people love it, the boldness, and others who say they love it might be lying. Williams has heard both sides, and at first he wasn’t sure what to think of it. “He didn’t wear it much in the beginning,” said Alexander Julian, who designed the jacket. (Charlotte Observer)

Ty Lawson 2009 vs. Joel Berry 2017

Although Joel Berry’s been great this year, his season pales in comparison to Ty Lawson’s sublime 2009 campaign—the G.O.A.T. point-guard statline in UNC history (with apologies to a couple of Phil Ford seasons, Kenny Smith in ’87, Raymond Felton in ’05, etc.). Berry stacks up favorably to Lawson in some key categories, while falling well short in others. (The Secondary Break)
