Roy Williams UNC coach escorted back to locker room after apparent fall during Clemson game UNC basketball coach Roy Williams

Robinson filled in for Williams when he had to leave a 2016 game at Boston College after a vertigo episode. Williams made one of two free throws, giving Clemson an opportunity to tie, but Tigers guard Shelton Mitchell was unable to get off a clean shot in the final seconds as the Tar Heels held on for an 81-79 victory.

Williams was available for the postgame presser; he said he would have been OK to return and coach, but given how his team was playing, he didn't want to get in the way of their groove.

With 55 seconds to go before the break, play was stopped as Williams fell to one knee in front of the Tar Heels' bench.

Needing a big play, Reed delivered, picking White's pocket and taking it all the way for a layup that brought Clemson to within five at 75-70 with 1:13 left on the game clock.

UNC would take advantage of some Clemson miscues down the stretch and a Johnson three-pointer gave the Tar Heels a 75-68 lead with 2:16. Garrison Brooks, Coby White and Cam Johnson all hit jumpers to extend UNC's lead to 46-37 and it looked like the Tar Heels would cruise to a victory.

North Carolina is playing like a final four type team right now.

Leading 78-72 with 1:02 to go, the last minute was frenetic.

Clemson earned a 62-48 win Wednesday night at Pittsburgh to move to 17-11 overall and 7-8 in the ACC.

White continued to strengthen his reputation as one of UNC's best scorers. He had 34 points with six 3s in beating Syracuse last time out.

Cameron Johnson had 19 points with six 3s of his own, and Luke Maye had 13 points and 10 rebounds. We've played well enough in several of the games to win them, but we haven't and that's on us.

Not until the very end, when Clemson's Mitchell barreled toward the basket in the final seconds with the Tigers trailing by two and turned the ball over after colliding with White. Can UNC keep rolling or will Clemson secure the upset win?

The Tar Heels, holding their highest national ranking of this season at No. 5, are coming off a 7-1 record in February and have assured themselves of a top-three finish in the league, thus securing a double bye into the quarterfinal round of the ACC Tournament.

When do they play next?


According to oddsmakers at BetNow.eu, the Tar Heels are a 4.5-point favorite on the spread line.
