Roy Williams Tie Tracker: Virginia


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.

This tie. It looks so familiar yet The Rafters can’t find Roy ever wearing it before. But damn, it’s pretty.

Roy’s got some blue crosshatching going on and was looking real fresh Saturday as the Boys took down those Wahoos in Charlottesville. And if you took a look down the sideline, you would have seen something else nice.

Yep, Saturday may have been the prettiest matchup we’ll see all year. Roy still walked away with two Ws though.
