UNC head coach Roy Williams suffers vertigo attack during game

UNC head coach Roy Williams suffers vertigo attack during game

"I jerked around to try to get Seventh (Woods) in for Kenny (Williams), because Kenny was struggling shooting the ball and we were making him work so hard on Marcquise Reed". Williams appeared to be turning toward a bench when he apparently fell forward.

"If I waffle, what do you thing those guys are going to do?" I'm only going to do this once every two or three years, but I don't do it intentionally. He's been like a brother to me.

"We're getting the most out of this experience...." "I started feeling a heck of a lot better, but he [Robinson] was up six or seven and I didn't want to jinx it".

Roy Williams collapsed on the sidelines before the end of the first half of North Carolina's game on Saturday at Clemson and confirmed the episode was due to vertigo. Players, assistants, medical personal and others surrounded him before two individuals lifted him up and walked with him back to the locker room. He said he assured them that Williams would be fine, and he told them that their job was to play. Let's all hope this was just a one off incident, and Williams will return better than ever.

The Tar Heels went into halftime up 39-35.

Williams waved to fans as he was escorted off the court. "At times, offensively, I thought we were just sort of moving the ball around but not with as much objective, so we got back the goal".

He said having Robinson serve as the head coach didn't change anything. Aamir Sims stopped that run with a 3-pointer a few seconds later to give the Tigers a 57-56 advantage, but the Heels continued to get points inside and out and held a 70-64 lead when Trapp was fouled with 3:16 to play. That seemed to shift momentum. UNC freshman Coby White had a game-high 28 points.

"It definitely has a feel of some of those teams", Williams said this week.

Gorecki scored eight of her 11 points in the first half. In the second half, the Tar Heels shot 48 percent and turned it over six times. He passed for 2,169 yards with 11 touchdowns and nine interceptions. The Tar Heels, who will take on Georgia Tech on Thursday (2 p.m.) at the ACC tournament in Greensboro, were without guard Paris Kea in the first match up and were missing Stephanie Watts in the rematch, then saw Janelle Bailey ejected after a fourth-quarter altercation Sunday.

They have won five consecutive games and 12 of their last 13. Winning both seems paramount to Clemson's at-large chances.
