Today, UNC head basketball coach Roy Williams held his scheduled press conference. While tomorrow the Tar Heels are set to face off against in-state “rivals” North Carolina State, the media had a wide variety of questions for Coach Williams.
Coach Williams on statistics: “I’m a basketball coach. I look at the big picture more than that stats…I study stats only to see if my thoughts are off base.”
Coach Williams on NC State: “It’s just one game, but it’s an important game. It’s North Carolina & North Carolina State.”
Coach Williams on TJ Warren: “We’ve got to get a body on him and wall him if it’s inside and bother his shot if it’s outside, but then get a body on him and stop him from getting to the boards. He’s about as efficient of a player as there may be is in the league.”
Coach Williams on approaching .500 in ACC standings: “It’s just one game. It’s an important game but it’s just one game.”
Coach Williams on JP Tokoto: “He’s getting better. Before he’s done, he’ll be one of the best defenders we’ve ever had…I hope he wants to be [as good as he can be]. He has every attribute you need to be a good perimeter defender.”
And your bonus quote from James Michael McAdoo on the NC State rivalry: “It’s just another basketball game like Boston College, Wake Forest, or Georgia Tech.”
