Lucas: Defense Takes First Steps

Sunday, December 17, 2006

Opponents were shooting 43 percent against the Tar Heels. To Roy Williams, who knows he has a team stocked with depth, quickness, and athleticism, this qualified as a personal affront. Keep in mind that his first Carolina team allowed opponents to shoot 44 percent and the head coach spent that season threatening to jump out of airplanes on the way home from road trips. So he put his squad through a two-day defensive boot camp. (Tar Heel Blue)
