Roy Williams Tie Tracker: Texas


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.

The Rafters never had a problem with Greensboro, until Saturday. Only Greensboro could find a way to put a damper on a day filled with UNC basketball and an otherwise dapper Roy Williams.

Oh yeah, and Canada. Canada ruined it for everyone on Saturday. What kind of team has two players from Canada? Two. Not one. Two players. And one of them happened to shoot a game-winner. What the hell, Canada?

At least Asheville produces better dressers than Hickory. Burn.
