HOUSTON — The top-seeded North Carolina basketball team is in Houston for the Final Four, and The Daily Tar Heel sports crew caught up with the team on Friday to watch the Tar Heels in an open practice at NRG Stadium.
Before the Tar Heels took the court, though, they took some time to speak to the media, and consensus All-America senior forward Brice Johnson was asked whether he even liked that responsibility:
"So, Brice, do you like talking to us?"
"Well, I mean, honestly, no, I don't," he said. "I'm going to be honest with you. Coming from a small town, there's not a lot of media. There's probably one newspaper. There are not like multiple. It's different.
"I mean, it was a learning experience when I first got here. Hey, you're going to get hit with a lot of media here. With all the other junk that was going on, it doubled. It was kind of crazy. But, I mean, I don't really like it. But I know it's part of the job."
