UNC Coach Says NCAA Champs Might Skip the White House

UNC Coach Says NCAA Champs Might Skip the White House

Roy Williams, who has been critical of President Donald Trump in the past, said he isn't sure if he'll take his team to the White House following its national title victory on Monday. But not close enough.

Refs or no refs, North Carolina's win also gave them bragging rights over their in-state rival, the Duke Blue Devils.

With 8:02 left in the game, Berry got called for a foul for (maybe) making contact with Karnowski and stripping the ball from the big man's hands.

He always has. And not even gimpy legs could stand between Berry and his season-long goal of helping his team erase the sting of last season's buzzer-beater NCAA final loss to Villanova.

Gonzaga allows 61.2 points per game and they have stayed at the number for the NCAA Tournament.

Well, this year, it wasn't a worry. "I think Coach was the best there's ever been on the court".

"Coach Rob just said, 'remember that moment and how we felt previous year". "From my angle, it didn't look like an out of bounds situation or I would have called a review".

Distracted driving deaths are trending, and not in a good way
Maui police will join law enforcement agencies across the nation in cracking down on motorists who text while driving. A self-admitted distracted driver slammed into a mini-bus last week in Texas, killing 13 senior members of a church.

Mets' Seth Lugo has torn elbow ligament, surgery possible
Lugo has announced a more proactive approach with his injury, and on Tuesday had a platelet-rich plasma injection in his elbow. An MRI on Monday revealed the issue in his elbow and he will be unavailable for at least the next two weeks.

Klopp wants Liverpool to copy Chelsea blueprint
You would think Liverpool's rivals are all flying high and thrashing the lesser sides, while the Reds are toiling away beneath them.

Check out the above photo of North Carolina's Kennedy Meeks battling Gonzaga's Silas Melson for a loose ball with less than a minute remaining and the Tar Heels up by one. I don't know which country. "And I tried to be more positive and I told them, a year ago we were ahead at halftime and the other team came out more focused than we did".

"When Kennedy blocked that shot and I grabbed the ball and threw it to Justin, I immediately nearly started crying", Berry said.

"We were negotiating through massive foul issues, ones that we haven't had all year", Few said.

North Carolina's Joel Berry II (2) shoots a free throw during the second half in the finals of the Final Four NCAA college basketball tournament against North Carolina, Monday, April 3, 2017, in Glendale, Ariz. The 6-foot-10-inch Meeks, an offensive rebounding titan the final three games of March Madness, grabbed the board.

Gonzaga, hampered by both Williams-Goss' 5-17 shooting and serious front-line foul trouble - wonder freshman Zach Collins fouled out with more than five minutes to go - the Bulldogs got an unexpected contribution from guard Josh Perkins, who scored 13 (all in the first half) after averaging five points in his earlier five tourney games.

That's assuming the Tar Heels get invited.

Jackson was 0-for-9 from beyond the arc but finished with 16 points, while Isaiah Hicks added 13. "I can't even. I don't know what it would have felt like if we didn't make it past year".

The Tar Heels rattled of eight consecutive points to take a 40-35 lead and please former Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak, who cheered his alma mater from his seat in the North Carolina fan section. "I told them don't worry about what the referee is doing, he missed a call, but, my God, we missed four free throws in a row, missed layups".
