Roy Williams On NCAA Tournament Bid

Roy Williams: “Well, I was certainly thankful that they told us where we were (seeded) early in a two-hour show. It was exciting. Our guys responded with some very positive feelings and applause and some statements that we really like (being a number one seed). It was a relief to know it that early. We feel like we accomplished some great things this season." (GoHeels.com)

North Carolina uses Ali-Frazier as inspiration in hard-fought ACC championship game

Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier had electrifying, gritty, fights of the century more than four decades ago. Roy Williams remembers those days. But his North Carolina players who were all born in the 90s? Not so much. But these players — the group that claimed the Tar Heels’ first ACC tournament championship since 2008 on Saturday — can relate to those boxing matches. (USA Today)

NCAA Selection Sunday: Last Look at the Projections

The NCAA Tournament field will be announced at some point during the ridiculously long two hour selection show starting at 5:30 PM on CBS.

The other question is whether UNC will be a #1 seed or not. (Tar Heel Blog)

Lennie Rosenbluth, the leader of the undefeated 1957 National Championship team, went to Staunton Military Academy for the 1952-53 school year. (Staunton News Leader)

Meet Alexander Julian, Designer of UNC’s Basketball Uniforms

Dipsea, his Yorkshire terrier, nestles into a cashmere sweater. A regular customer walks into Julian’s, and the owner, Alexander Julian, slips away to greet her. Julian begins promoting some of his current sales on sport coats, then points an accusing finger at Dipsea and wraps up his pitch by saying, “With every three jackets, you get one dog!” (Our State Magazine)

UNC 61, Virginia 57: Three Observations

Joel Berry: Winner. When Joel Berry was in high school his teams won three straight state titles in Florida. His performance in three ACC Tournament games is a reminder that Berry was a big reason for those titles. Berry came out of high school as a player who put up big performances with championships on the line and that mentality has carried over as UNC's point guard. (Tar Heel Blog)

An emotional Roy Williams can take a breath with two titles to UNC's credit

Roy Williams recalled being emotional as he talked about his deceased mother, sister and father during his 2007 Hall of Fame induction. He was also emotional about his 1997 Kansas team that took a 34-1 record into a Sweet 16 loss to Arizona. Just as Williams was upset that the seniors from the 1997 team didn't make a Final Four, he didn't want his current seniors to leave UNC without any titles. (Fayetteville Observer)

Lucas: Time To Celebrate

It’s the kind of scene you watch and then you realize your face is hurting because you’ve been smiling without even realizing it. “In that moment, there is so much going on,” said Nate Britt. “First, we’re all jumping around and celebrating. Then they pass out hats and we’re like, ‘Ohhhh, we get hats!’ Then they pass out shirts and we’re like ‘Ohhhhh, we get shirts!’ " (GoHeels.com)

Tar Heels make post-title detour to see family

The family members of the ACC Champion Tar Heels had to wait on the concourse, where the 18,000-plus fans were still making their way out of the arena. When Coach Williams heard about the development, he told his team, “Go see your families, guys.” That was all they needed to hear. Off went the players. (Carolina Blue)

Paige, Berry play smart in ACC Tournament championship victory

The pair delivered in a 61-57 win against Virginia. (Winston-Salem Journal)
