Quote Of The Day

(Phil Sears/U.S. Presswire)
"I said, 'Guys, I apologize. There was a miscommunication between (assistant) coach (Joe) Holladay and myself. I would never have left you out there to play the game,' " – UNC head coach Roy Williams who took his team off the floor to avoid FSU fans storming the court, but left behind the five players still on the court.

Williams said he started to become concerned about the raucous crowd toward the end of the game. At the end of UNC's loss to UNLV in Las Vegas earlier this season, a female manager got pushed to the ground by rushing fans, and Williams said he was trying to avoid a repeat of that.

Williams says he tried to explain the issue to an official standing in front of the team's bench, but said the referee responded with,"I don't know what to tell you."

During a dead ball timeout, Williams said he spoke with Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton about his concerns and Hamilton agreed that Williams should take his players off the court…

Needless to say, Ol’ Roy took some heat from the fan base back in Chapel Hill…especially from the group that thinks the Tar Heels should be undefeated National Champions EVERY year.
