UNC Basketball: Roy Williams ‘Scared to Death’ Of Joel Berry’s Status


UNC basketball coach Roy Williams is “scared to death” about the status of Joel Berry for the Final Four after multiple ankle injuries.

North Carolina managed to best Kentucky in a battle of juggernauts in the Elite 8 last weekend. The game wasn’t without casualties, though. After hurting his ankle in the opening game of the tournament against Texas Southern, Tar Heel spark plug Joel Berry aggravated his other ankle in the game against the Wildcats.

The injury temporarily forced Berry out of the game, but questions still exist about his availability going forward.

Tar Heels head coach Roy Williams is clearly concerned about the status of Berry ahead of the teams most important game this season.

Logic and history tells us that Berry will play. Now in his third year at UNC, Berry will likely be do everything he can to make sure he is able to play in the game he fought all year to reach.

There is still work to be done to reach the pinnacle of the basketball season, and he knows his team stands a substantially worse chance if he is not on the floor. On the other hand, though, hurt is hurt and it will be up to the team trainers to clear him to play.

An ultra-competitor like Berry will likely do all the lobbying he possibly can.

The final decision, though, won’t be his.
