Wisconsin routs UNC, Williams falls to 29-1 in NCAA openers
– North Carolina coach Roy Williams lost his first opening-round NCAA Tournament game in 30 tries as ninth-seeded Wisconsin blew out his eighth-seeded Tar Heels 85-62 on Friday night. “I thought (Wisconsin) played very well and Roy Williams didn’t coach very well,” Williams said. Brad Davison scored 29 points and D’Mitrik Trice added 21 points for Wisconsin. “Obviously, our league has been phenomenal and it was such a grind to go through, specifically the schedule we had down the stretch,” Wisconsin coach Greg Gard said. North Carolina never won more than three straight games all season.
