Roy Williams is a better coach than was his mentor, late North Carolina great Dean Smith.
Congratulations Coach Roy Williams and the Carolina Tarheels for securing the last final four spot! What a game!

Final 14 secs of the Elite 8:
Roy Williams' recruitment of Luke Maye deserves as much praise as getting a 5-star. Kept him warm, didn't alienate or offend. Offered late.

Luke Maye committed to UNC as a walk-on despite scholly offers from ACC teams. He committed at height of NCAA "junk". Luke Maye…Tar Heel

Coaches: Late game, other team scores to tie or take lead. Do you call TO? Roy Williams' rule: 6 sec or more, push it. What do you practice?

How great is this?
The definition of a student–athlete.

Well, it’s a fantastic feeling right now. Second half we got off to a bad start, turned it over a couple times, they made shots, and all of a sudden they tie the score, and we make two or three shots and get back up. And then it was hit or miss all the way down the stretch, and then all of a sudden we’re five down. And we had the timeout and I told them the same thing it was against Arkansas. I told them at that time it was going to be good for us, and I felt like it would be good for us today. What we had to do is we had to play. Got to get a great shot. Theo (Pinson) made a tough shot, a runner on the baseline, far across from our bench, and then Justin (Jackson) made a tough one, and believe it or not, we went zone, just tried to see if we could give them a different look. They were getting too much dribble penetration, and two or three possessions, and they didn’t score, and we make some good plays. Luke Maye was sensational in making baskets for us, made the big pass down court to Justin for the layup. Theo made some big free throws, Luke made some big free throws, and we’re still sitting here.

Final Fours all-time:
Roy Williams is headed to his ninth Final Four. Only John Wooden (12), Mike Krzyzewski (12) and Dean Smith (11) have been more times.
— Gary Parrish (@GaryParrishCBS) March 26, 2017
The Final Four has consisted of at least one out of UNC, Kentucky, Louisville, Duke, UCLA, and Kansas in each of the last 30 seasons.

What do you think? Is Williams a better coach then Dean Smith?
