Ol’ Roy Quote Of The Day And John Henson Update

You know, it’s not an ACC tournament unless North Carolina head coach Roy Williams backhands the post season event for which he has long harbored no great love.

It’s even better when he does it in the third person. Mind you, what he said made perfect sense, but we’re sure some old school ACCers took offense...especially in Durham and Raleigh...

Regarding the decision to sit out John Henson in yesterday’s semifinal win over N.C. State, Williams said, “If it had been the Final Four, I think he probably would have played. But … that’s not Ol’ Roy stating anything about this tournament, that’s just a fact.”

On Henson’s status for today’s final against Florida State, after yesterday’s game:

“He said today that he feels considerably better than he did yesterday. Now, is it going to improve at that same rate by tomorrow? I personally have my doubts, but we’ll just go with the same policy, the same procedure, tomorrow.” 

Saturday, UNC’s procedure was to tape the wrist in the locker room once the team arrived at Philips Arena, and judge how Henson felt gripping a basketball, and trying to dribble it and catch it.
