Williams, 65, has struggled with vertigo in the past and this episode took place while the Tar Heels were trailing the Eagles. Currently, UNC trails BC 56-49.
The good news is that according to Tar Heels beat writer Andrew Carter, of The News & Observer, Williams is going to be just fine.
UNC spokesman Steve Kirschner tells us, of Roy, "He's doing OK." Got dizzy, had to be taken to locker room.
