North Carolina’s Roy Williams gets 300th Win
Hall of Fame coach Roy Williams of the North Carolina Tar Heels got his 300th win last night, over Florida State. UNC had to rally but cut the cake with a 81-75 win.
Roy Williams is a product of legendary Tar Heels coach Dean Smith. Williams was an assistant for years at UNC before becoming the head coach at Kansas. Coach Williams could never win the NCAA Championship in Kansas. He had top shelf players but could never cut the big cake.
After, a couple of coaches and Dean Smith's retirement, it was time for Roy Williams to come home to North Carolina. He has won two national championships since taking over. When you think of North Carolina hoops, you think of Dean Smith and Michael Jordan. Let me tell you this: You can put Roy Williams name right with the both of those kingpins.
Roy Williams will go own as one of the top-flight college basketball coaches in NCAA history. He is a top-shelf recruiter, fundamentalist and has always run a clean program. His current team has won seven in a row--they came into the Breslin Center this year unranked and beat MSU handily.
Congratulations to Roy Williams. Don't ever sell him short.
