Former North Carolina basketball star Rashad McCants shot back at Tar Heels head coach Roy Williams on Tuesday and answered criticism about his allegations of academic fraud while a member of the 2004-05 national championship team.
In a 35-minute, on-camera interview Saturday, UNC basketball coach Roy Williams said the experiences Rashad McCants shared did not match what he knows about his players' academic efforts and records and the basketball program he oversees.
UNC coach Roy Williams knows his 2008-09 team, with its impressive talent and depth, will carry the burden of great expectations. So he's made it clear to his team that the Tar Heels' title hopes come first, writes Andy Katz.
With the NBA now paying for early entrants' workouts, it doesn't make sense for some players not to test the draft waters. But some high-profile players waited until the 11th hour to decide, writes Andy Katz.
