Let's all hope this was just a one off incident, and Williams will return better than ever. The seven-point lead seemed like enough, especially after Clemson missed a three-point attempt and UNC would grab a defensive and offensive rebound. It occurred with a minute left before halftime and the Tar Heels leading, 35-33.
The AP reports that Williams was seen smiling after the game, an 81-79 Tar Heels win, and shook Clemson Coach Brad Brownell's hand.
With 55 seconds to go before the break, play was stopped as Williams fell to one knee in front of the Tar Heels' bench. UNC switched to freshmen Cade Fortin and Jace Ruder, and sophomore Chazz Surratt at various points, though Elliott took over again after each got hurt.
Well, we're not sure, as we have to wait until an official diagnosis is in, but what many believe may have happened to Williams is vertigo, and from the looks of it, that's what he may have suffered from on the sideline.
Minnesota Vikings head coach to speak with the media at NFL Combine
His numbers at the Combine this year are closer to Russell Wilson's when he was coming out of Wisconsin than anyone anticipated. So it appears that Murray is a half-inch shorter than Wilson with smaller hands and shorter arms , but is slightly heavier.
But then came a cold streak.
The senior guard, a member of two Final Four teams and an NCAA champion with the Tar Heels, said this season's group possesses that same kind of Final Four fabric. 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. A Clemson steal with 1:14 left cut the lead down to five. He took a knee after getting dizzy in UNC's game against Louisville on January 12.
Expectations for the Tar Heels going into the 2019 season were already low, as coach Brown was supposed to slowly bring the program back into the spotlight.
This win helps UNC keep pace with Virginia, who beat Pitt on Saturday, for first-place atop the ACC standings.
