Trust finally pays off for Roy Williams, North Carolina in win over Wolfpack

None of UNC's missteps of the past floated through the players' minds down the stretch in their 85-79 win over NC State. And Roy Williams made sure of it.

For UNC basketball coach Roy Williams, beating NC State has become routine. He is 37-4 against the Wolfpack as a head coach, and since 2008, he has as many NCAA Championships as losses to the team. If anyone has an excuse to not view the team in Raleigh as a rival, it would be Roy. But he does view them as a rival. He doesn’t like State. Never has. (Argyle Report)

Chansky’s Notebook: Still Seeing Red

The best 11-17 team in the country sent State packing again. Maybe Roy Williams should load up his schedule next season with schools that have “State” in their names – Arkansas State, Boise State, you get the point. UNC bookended wins over the Wolfpack to end a near-historic losing streak, and it took the usual suspects and one newcomer to get it done. (Chapelboro.com)
