Roy Williams has surgeryPosted: September 19, 2012
I keep thinking that the college basketball world will be quiet until the middle of October, but keep getting proved wrong. I opened my email after teaching a particularly frustrating class today to a link to Roy Williams in the NY Times.
It seems that he had a “medical procedure” today that two anonymus sources said was a kidney tumor removal. The university has not publicly addressed this information and a team spokesman was vague on what Coach Williams had done today.
Before I could release this post, ESPN did release some information about what is going on. It seams that Williams is resting comfortably at UNC hospital after a 3 1/2 hour surgery to remove a tumor from his right kidney. He may have to go back for surgery on his left as well. While this will keep him sidelined for a few weeks, the general consensus is he will not miss any games.
Rest well Coach and we look forward to a great Tar Heel season!
