CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina has brought another NCAA
championship trophy home to campus.
The Tar Heels joined thousands of blue-clad fans at the Smith
Center on Tuesday for a rally to celebrate the program's fifth
national title and its first since 2005.
Coach Roy Williams was the last to arrive, and he entered
carrying the trophy and the net he helped cut down at Ford Field in
Detroit.
Less than 24 hours earlier, the Tar Heels beat Michigan State
89-72 for the title. Before leaving Detroit, Williams said he
doesn't have a timetable for when juniors Ty Lawson and Wayne
Ellington will decide if they will enter the NBA draft.
