Late Night with Roy Details

Each year North Carolina Tar Heels basketball kicks off with Late Night with Roy. Carolina head coach Roy Williams’ status for Late Night have yet to be determined.  Williams recently underwent a successful surgery to remove a tumor in his kidney which have been found as non-cancerous.  Though it is likely coach will be in attendance, nothing has been confirmed.

Personally, I love Late Night.  The kids get down and have a good time, we get to watch a scrimmage.  Stupid dances and everybody has a good time, best of all, admission is free, a perfect way to kick off the season!
