UNC-VT: Roy Williams Postgame Quotes & Video

Roy Williams opening comments: "It was really a workman like game. I thought Virginia Tech’s zone defense really gave us problems. We didn’t get the kind of movement we’ve been getting nor did we shoot the ball as well. Still, it’s another win going 12-4 in the league we’re happy with the result, but we’ve got to play better and we’ve got to get better." (Inside Carolina)
