If there is anything we have learned about North Carolina basketball under the leadership of head coach Roy Williams, it's that the program can rarely be counted out.

Sure, there was the 2009-10 season when UNC lost the NIT championship to Dayton. But Ol' Roy has still produced six ACC regular-season titles, two ACC tournament titles, six Elite Eight appearances and two national titles.

Even without a title, this could still prove to be his best campaign yet.

Whether we agree with his strategies this season or not, the fact remains that this team is winning when it matters the most. The final stretch of the season is where Roy truly proves his worth.
