Roy Williams: Dean Smith struggling with memory loss

Tuesday, September 03, 2013

North Carolina head basketball coach Roy Williams said former coach Dean Smith is struggling in his battle with cognitive disorder. When asked how Smith is dealing with the disease, Williams said, "He will still have some good moments, but it's a very cruel disease. "The memory loss is cruel because we are talking about the guy who had the best memory of anyone I have known in my entire life," Williams said. (WNCN)
