While Alex did a nice job examining several of UNC’s coaching issues earlier this week, I thought I’d weigh in on issues I saw with Carolina’s personnel and why they aren’t getting the job done. Here’s my take on the 3 biggest issues behind UNC’s struggles:
While Alex talked about this some in his post, it bears repeating: I’ll say in closing (and I’ll say it many times before his career is through) that I feel like Roy Williams, while a lights-out recruiter, is really a very average strategist, in-game coach and motivator. He’s got a strong system and it good at teaching it, but has very little ability to work in the moment to change the course of a game. I hope I’m proved right tonight.
