UNC's Roy Williams falls near bench, helped off court

North Carolina basketball Coach Roy Williams was escorted off the court after an apparent fall near the bench during UNC's game against Clemson on Saturday. As he walked back off the floor, the crowd cheered and Williams gave them a wave. The Tigers fouled Kenny Williams with 12.7 seconds to play and he hit both free throws make it 80-77, and the Heels fouled Mitchell at the 10.3 second mark.

"I'm not going to croak on anybody".

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.

"I just wanted to let y'all know I'm alive", Williams said after the game.

It is unclear whether he will return, but associate head coach Steve Robinson will serve in the interim. He was forced to leave during a win over Boston College three years ago.

Donald Dossier: How Cohen's Reveal Reduces the Risk of Impeachment
Cohen says Weisselberg decided that reimbursements to Cohen should be spread out over 12 months to "hide what the payment was". Trump criticized the timing of the hearing saying it should not have been happened while he was on an important trip.

"It definitely has a feel of some of those teams", Williams said this week.

"When I say benign positional vertigo, that's exactly what it is", he said in 2016.

"And I didn't want to jinx it", he said. "I'm really proud of our guys, but North Carolina...they are just very good". "I'm only going to [do] this once every two or three years, but I don't do it intentionally".

Coby White had 28 points behind six 3-pointers, and the Tar Heels (24-5) maintained a share of first place in the Atlantic Coast Conference, tied with No. 2 Virginia at 14-2 with a week left in the regular season.

Cam Johnson added 19 points and Luke Maye had 13 points and 10 rebounds for the Tar Heels (24-5, 14-2 ACC).
