Luke Maye set career highs in points (32) and rebounds (18) as the North Carolina Tar Heels downed Boston College 96-66 at the Dean Smith Center.
Williams used a new starting lineup in the game, going without a traditional center. Williams started Joel Berry, Kenny Williams, Theo Pinson, Cam Johnson and Maye. The small look helped juice the offense – the Tar Heels scored 50 points in the first half.
Here’s what Williams had to say after the game.
"We got beat twice in a row and we weren't playing well, so I decided to do something," Roy says of the small lineup. "I may decide to go big again next time, who knows?"

Roy W: “last year we won a National Championship and we lost at UVA probably worse than the other day. We lost to Miami too. We don’t play them this year, we played FSU but we lost in the State of Florida. You can’t panic with a couple losses.”
Valid points, Roy. #UNC

Roy Williams musing a little about how they missed out on Havelock guard Ky Bowman, wishes someone had told him how good he really was.
