Roy Williams, Brad Brownell Post-UNC vs. Clemson Quotes

Roy Williams: "That's ACC basketball. We shoot 65 percent in the second half but turn it over 10 times. They make 15 of their first 16 shots or something outrageous like that. They shoot 32 percent in the first half and 61 percent in the second half. It was a weird game. I told the guys, I started the season at 67 and I'm going to end the season at 97. It's frustrating at times." (

UNC-Clemson Postgame Notes

UNC maintains record home streak against Clemson...barely

The North Carolina Tar Heels managed to keep college basketball’s longest home winning streak intact Tuesday by turning back the Clemson Tigers for a 59th straight time, 87-79, but it required a little blood and guts to make it happen. The No. 15-ranked Tar Heels fought off a second-half charge that saw the No. 20 Tigers cut a 19-point deficit to two with 6:15 to play. (Fayetteville Observer)

Same ol’, same ol’

Clemson added a new level of frustration to a longstanding streak of futility in Chapel Hill by playing one of its best stretches of offense ever under coach Brad Brownell. And yet the result was the same as it’s been the previous 58 trips to North Carolina’s home court. Of Clemson’s 15 consecutive made shots, UNC coach Roy Williams said, “I’ve never seen anything like that.” (Spartanburg Herald-Journal)

UNC’s ‘forever’ streak (59-0) continues: Tar Heels withstand Clemson’s 2nd-half surge

UNC coach Roy Williams calls it the “forever” streak – that in 58 tries, Clemson has never beaten UNC in Chapel Hill. Make it 59. The fact that No. 15 UNC beat No. 20 Clemson 87-79 Tuesday means that streak continues, but only mentioning that does a disservice to the competitiveness of the game. Clemson did lead at one point on Tuesday, 2-0, on the game’s first bucket. (Charlotte Observer)

Joel Berry II scored 14 of his 17 after halftime for the Tar Heels, who hung on despite seeing most of an 18-point lead erased by Clemson's torrid second-half shooting. (Associated Press)

Clemson gets hot but can’t snap winless skid at UNC

Not even a run of 15 consecutive made shots was enough to end Clemson’s losing streak at North Carolina. The Tar Heels built a 15-point halftime lead and overcame an incredible display of shot making in the second half by Clemson to beat the Tigers 87-79. The loss is Clemson 59th consecutive defeat in Chapel Hill. Clemson remains winless at UNC dating back to 1925. (The State)

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - UNC vs. Clemson

If you'd said on Tuesday afternoon Clemson would shoot 61.3 percent in the second half, you might not have felt very positive about UNC's chances. But the Tar Heels survived a hot Tiger second half, including 8-of-16 from the three-point line, to take an 87-79 victory. "That's ACC basketball," Roy Williams said. The first half saw some of UNC's best ball movement of the season. (

Clemson gets a chance (again) to end its streak in Chapel Hill

Clemson’s going to Chapel Hill on Tuesday for the resumption of the Tigers’ most frustrating streak and one of the most perplexing in all of college basketball. Clemson has never beaten UNC in Chapel Hill. Not in the old Tin Can. Not in Woollen Gym. Not in Carmichael. Not in the Smith Center. Never. It’s a streak that now stands at 58 games over a 92-year span. (Greensboro News & Record)

Hoping to snap an 0-58 streak, veteran Clemson basketball team travels to North Carolina

Donte Grantham remembers walking into the Dean Smith Center this time two years ago in Chapel Hill and looking around for the first time. He saw Michael Jordan’s jersey in the rafters. He saw Vince Carter’s jersey. He looked at the national championship banners, skimmed the jerseys of UNC Hall of Famers and thought of all of those who made the NBA. (Charleston Post and Courier)
