Roy is probably a nice guy but he is an average coach. He only looks good when he has a talented team.
Coach K has had less talented teams than this UNC team bette prepared for the season.
A few tidbits...
- He's stubborn as hell: I'm aware that he likes to coach his own way but my God, when an opposing team goes on a 16-5 run or is up one with 15 seconds left in the game, use a timeout.
- He fails to make crucial adjustments: Roy continued to try to run the fast pace offense against a team that didn't send anyone to the offensive glass, you can't run on a team that already has five guys back. Instead of running the floor, slow it down and go inside on primarily small team. I mean goodness gracious you have Joel James, James McAdoo, Brice Johnson, Kennedy Meeks, Isaiah Hicks, Desmond Hubert, Jackson Simmons, and you're settling for 25 foot jump shots from Tokoto. Another adjustment he could have made was telling his guys to switch on the screens. Belmont is primarily a three point shooting team, you don't have to worry about the roller on the screen and even if Belmont does happen to beat you on the pick and roll, you will most likely have a guard going against Joel James at the rim. James wins that battle 90% of the time.
Bottom line is that Roy is not answer for this team (in my opinion).
