NCAA BASKETBALL: Tar Heels deny wrongdoing
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina coach Roy Williams and players from the 2005 national championship team deny they were involved with academic wrongdoing alleged by former teammate Rashad McCants.
In an interview with ESPN’s “Outside the Lines,” McCants said tutors wrote papers for him. He also said he believes Williams knew “100 percent” about players taking no-show classes.
In a statement, Williams said he “strongly” disagreed with McCants’ comments. In a joint statement, 16 players from the 2005 team defended their Hall of Fame coach.
