Interesting comment from UNC head coach Roy Williams regarding his team’s lack of “success” this season.
“I just didn’t do as good a job with this club this year as I needed to”, coach Roy Williams said Thursday, after the Tar Heels lost to Georgia Tech in their ACC tournament opener. “I couldn’t get the right buttons pushed,” said Williams, whose Tar Heels were ranked No. 6 early in the season but lost 10 of 12 at one point. “I didn’t know what those buttons were.”
When was the last time anyone ever heard Ed make a comment similar to this one?
Rather that looking inward to one’s self, maybe it is just easier to blame shots not falling, or bad luck, or a confluence of circumstances for why so many losses happened this season. Perhaps it is the “enlightenment” that Williams exhibited in his comments that led him to two NCAA Tournament titles in five years at UNC?
Interesting side note, Illinois will open at Stony Brook on Long Island, N.Y., a road trip made necessary by a scheduling conflict as Assembly Hall in Champaign. The arena is booked Wednesday night for a performance by Cirque du Soleil.
Wonder how Illini fans feel about that one, if there are many that even care?
