UNC head coach Roy Williams suffers vertigo attack during game

UNC head coach Roy Williams suffers vertigo attack during game

The Tar Heels fell behind early and trailed for most of the first half.

It was also pretty classy from the Clemson crowd to show their support for Williams as he got help.

But it was a scary moment near the end of the first half that grabbed the headlines. He was escorted to the locker room. He would not return to the game.

Williams went to one knee with 55 seconds remaining, and with UNC up 35-33. Garrison Brooks, Coby White and Cam Johnson all hit jumpers to extend UNC's lead to 46-37 and it looked like the Tar Heels would cruise to a victory. He took a knee after getting dizzy in UNC's game against Louisville on January 12. The line between the Tigers being a comfortable NCAA Tournament team and one that's dribbling toward the NET ... well it's a line defined by fewer than 10 points. He has coached the Tar Heels to three national championships, including the 2017 title at the Final Four in Glendale. The Heels held a 78-70 lead when Trapp nailed a 3-pointer from the corner that made it 78-75 with just under a minute to play, and the Heels called a timeout with 39.3 seconds left on the clock.

Marquise Reed led Clemson with 24 points, and Elijah Thomas had 14 points and 11 rebounds. After another UNC bucket, the lead was extended to seven again. He may not be back to coach the 2nd half at Clemson. Down two, Shelton Mitchell got the rebound off a missed UNC free throw.

Clemson basketball is on a two-game winning streak, but that's coming off a time where they had lost three-straight beforehand. The game was stopped for about a minute. Current sophomores Jace Ruder and Cade Fortin, as well as incoming freshman Sam Howell are the Tar Heels in-house options going into the start of the season.
