Last weekend was big for Tar Heel basketball fans, even though the season does not start for another month. Friday, Coach Roy Williams was inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.
As a head coach, Williams has had seven 30 win seasons, has made five trips to the Final Four, and has one National Championship under his belt.
While I didn't play basketball, he was my freshman PE coach at Charles D. Owen High School in Swannanoa, NC. Before he became the head coach at Carolina, Williams coached at Kansas. Before that, he was an assistant at Carolina under Dean Smith, who is also enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame.
