Roy Williams talks Texas A&M but his mind is on Tiger Woods

UNC coach has Tiger fever doesn't care who knows

UNC coach has Tiger fever doesn't care who knows

Williams has consistently transitioned his game from regular season to ACC Tournament and into the NCAA tournament as he led four Tar Heels in double figures with 18 in Friday's 84-66 win over 15-seed Lipscomb in Charlotte. Davis, along with junior forward D.J. Hogg and sophomore big man Robert Williams, provide a formidable front for just about any team in the nation. "I just wanted to live in the moment and have fun with it". "Their perimeter guys have a lot of size, too". That was key to getting the win, especially considering how poorly they've done against the three all season.

While that's probably an exaggeration meant to play games with an opponent's mind, UNC (26-10) does have reason to be concerned about Texas A&M's strength inside.

Texas A&M did execute the drive, kick and shoot well against Providence at all, but part of that was the lack of three-pointer shooters.

"We knew we couldn't support that much on him", Pinson said. "And we didn't do that, so we were playing uphill all night".

It's a strategy that worked against Duke's freshman duo of Marvin Bagley III and Wendell Carter Jr.in last week's ACC tournament semifinal victory in Brooklyn.

"You gotta love being in this kind of environment", A&M junior center Tyler Davis said. I think the Tar Heels will compete on the glass and will hit enough shots to get the cover....

Texas A&M coach Billy Kennedy's NCAA tournament record is now 4-3 - compiled at schools, including Southeastern Louisiana and Murray State. Pinson put his hands up as if to say, "Calm down", and then burst into laughter.

The talk out of Pittsburgh at mid-week was that eight players from a Panthers team that finished 0-16 in ACC play are seeking releases from their scholarships. North Carolina knew they were going to expect that, but the Bison kept up.

He's not the only one, though.

It will likely be Pinson and Maye who are tasked with keeping Texas A&M's duo in check throughout the evening.

Senior Aaron Korn's fast break layup with 6:37 to play made it a 14-point game and jolted the Lipscomb crowd, who buzzed for a run to bring the game back within reach. Brooks contributed seven, grabbed a rebound and dished three assists.

After the game, Berry told reporters that statistic was something he'd make his children look up one day.

UMBC scored 53 points in the second half alone - eclipsing the total the Tar Heels scored against Virginia in two of the past three games.

That not something either either Davis or Williams is looking forward to.

"As a coach, I've known Coach Williams a long time".

"Carolina is a different matchup", Williams added. "But to make it as far as we have, I wouldn't have thought we would have been this good".

According to Manley, UNC's game plan is simple. Pinson committed an offensive foul on the other end, opening the door for the Bisons to string together a pair of baskets.
