UNC-Harvard: Roy Williams Postgame Quotes

Roy Williams: "I feel like I've won the lottery because Tommy Amaker did a much better job with his team than I did with mine. We were extremely lucky.

Preview & Prediction: #4 UNC vs #13 Harvard

What happened last week may have been UNC finally (and belatedly) clicking as a team. The normal mode of operation for a Roy Williams team is to hit its stride in early February and head into March playing extremely well.

Now healthy, Marcus Paige looking to rewrite season narrative

North Carolina guard Marcus Paige played through the pain for the better part of three months this season without complaint.
