Roy Williams Tie Tracker: Rutgers
One thing all UNC fans have come to know, love and expect of Roy Williams is his fashionable selection of ties, most often courtesy of Chapel Hill outfitter Alexander Julian. The same man who put the argyle on the side of the basketball uniform is still turning heads with what he’s putting around Ol’ Roy’s neck. So, here at The Rafters we decided to pay homage to the best accesory in college hoops, if not the entire sporting world, and document every tie Roy Williams wears this season.
Roy was back to his old ways with a white shirt and black slacks. The arm sling cover was looking real clean though.
The Old Well logo that appeared for one game on Roy’s pocket was back like it was against Presbyterian.
