The North Carolina men’s basketball team held one of its weekly Zoom meetings on Sunday, putting an emphasis on the group's aspects outside of the game of basketball. “As I was growing up and even up until the last several months," said UNC men's basketball coach Roy Williams, "my biggest heroes were my teachers that I’ve had all the way through high school and college and the mentors that I’ve had. Now my heroes are all the healthcare people and the providers.”
