ST. LOUIS — You’ve heard Roy Williams at various points this season describe Stilman White as a guy who’s out there, who’s not of the normal, who’s a bit of a character. Williams, the Tar Heels coach, recently described White as a “wacko.” It was a term of endearment.
White started his first college game on Friday night in place of the injured Kendall Marshall, and when the Tar Heels play against Kansas here on Sunday in the NCAA tournament Midwest regional final, there’s a good chance – a great chance – White will be starting again.
So, naturally, the national media members who have gathered here want to know more about White. About why he’s this guy that Williams likes to rag on. Williams was happy to oblige earlier today.
