"And he is a coward. but North Carolina is a classy place and one person doesn't speak for the rest of the people". But even if North Carolina loses its final two regular-season games to Virginia (Monday) and Duke (Saturday), the Tar Heels will still be nothing less than ACC co-champions - which means Williams has now won ACC regular-season championships eight times in the past 13 years.
Jackson has now made at least four 3-pointers in three consecutive games. "That put us up 15, and there is a big difference between 12 and 15".
"You do get them ready for tournament play and it builds your momentum once you get into the tournament", Williams said Friday. After the game, though, the coach praised UNC's Dean E. Smith Center for having a "classy" environment. The Heels are now 24-5 on the season and 12-3 in the ACC.
The Tar Heels (3-1) have made their name this season by jumping all over their opponents early, but this wasn't the case Saturday.
No. 11 Kentucky 76, No. 13 Florida 66: Malik Monk scored 30 of his 33 points in the second half, Bam Adebayo added 18 points with 15 rebounds, and the host Wildcats took over the Southeastern Conference lead. They played Chattanooga and Long Beach State on November 13-15, Florida State and Syracuse on January 14-16 and Virginia Tech and Miami on January 26-28.
Clemson (14-14, 4-12) fell to 1-9 in ACC games decided by six points or fewer.

He said: "The songs in the category and the artists are so much bigger than I am, so I'm not expecting to win anything". Robbie Williams will take to the stage at this year's Brits after winning the Brits Icon Award last year.
"Because I didn't like the calls in the game", Pitino said, again with a smile. North Carolina out-rebounded the Panthers 48-28 in total rebounds and 24-9 on the offensive boards. Under a cloud of possible future NCAA sanctions that has undeniably hindered the pursuit of prospects, North Carolina's past four classes have ranked sixth (2013), third (2014), 10th (2015) and fifth (2016) in the ACC, according to 247Sports.
The Tar Heels continued their impressive rebounding in the second half.
Carolina started the game slow, falling behind 10-4. Both teams shot over 45 percent from behind the arc and over 60 percent from the charity stripe.
UNC is shooting 37.1 percent from three in ACC play, which is good enough to force teams to play the perimeter honestly, especially with hot hands such as Jackson and Berry on the floor. "Every time we go out whether it's practice or just shootaround, no matter what it is, we have to remember those four seconds". Before fans knew it, the Cardinals were back within two before North Carolina went on a 7-0 run, capped off by the jumper from Meeks.
"You guys have been with us on the road and you hear things students will say that would make the devil blush", Pitino said. "But give them a lot of credit". "You've got to take care of your business, . and you want to win as much as you can". However, they have covered in six of its last seven games.
"That's how you've got to think about it", Meeks said.
