Roy Williams Tie Tracker: UNCG
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 accessory in college hoops, if not the entire sporting world, and document every Roy Williams tie this season.
Roy and coaching staff were wearing purple ties against UNC-Greensboro to raise awareness for pancreatic cancer and honor Roy’s friend Ted Seagroves. Also, note UNC alum Jackie Manuel and Wes Miller looking good on the Spartans’ bench.
