Meadowlands: Terry Update

By David Scott - March 24, 2007

UNC's lone senior of note, Reyshawn Terry, is still battling the effects of his bout with strep throat and coach Roy Williams is still not sure of what Terry's status will be for Sunday's game.

"I did hear him laugh this morning for the first time in seven days," said Williams. "But he had no gas in the tank left last night. His tank was out and I emptied it after he didn't get back on defense after missing a jumper in front of our bench (and arguing with an official)."

Terry missed his first start of the season and came off the bench to play in just five minutes (one in the second half), but still managed nine points and an assist. Sophomore Marcus Ginyard got the start in place of Terry, his first of the season, and filled in admirably with 10 points, nine rebounds and one turnover in 26 minutes.

. . . We're working on a Brandan Wright columnette for later in the day and will also get you some highlights from the Georgetown coach and player availibility sessions.

. . . As expected, the 1982 game is a big storyline and Williams seemed to get a bit weary of the line of questioning during his presser, but still offered some his memories and thoughts on that game, where he still had "black hair" and was an assistant under Dean Smith. The players - none of whom were born in 1982 - were also a bit perplexed by the '82 storyline, but did their best to answer the historical questions on the game. The clip of Jordan's shot is part of a pre-game video shown in the Dean Dome, according to the players.
