Williams discusses what he learned during North Carolina’s loss to Butler:
I don’t know that it’s the best thing, but it did open our eyes a little bit, because we really haven’t played … a very difficult schedule. My nine years that I’ve been here, our schedule’s been ranked in the top 25 most difficult schedules every year, I think, except one, and like five times in the top 10. … Butler, all of the sudden, is a good team, and they hit us right in the mouth, and they backed us up. And we never came back for about 28 minutes, and then all of a sudden, we did have a sense of urgency. … I liked our toughness at that point, but, man, we let them hit us right in the mouth to start with. … It showed us a lot of holes in our game.
