CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Roy Williams' assistant coaches pulled a neat little trick on him on the way out to the bench. Stuart Scott was mid-sentence when Roy appeared from the tunnel.

As the crowd roared, Roy looked behind him and let loose a big grin when he realized all of his assistants had remained hidden in the tunnel leaving Roy to soak in the crowd's response himself. Of course, it's even more funny since Roy usually eschews the spotlight.

And now fans in the front row across from the scorer's table are holding up t-shirts with the recruits' names and numbers on the back. Told you the fans would be giving them some love.

The second "gotcha" moment of the night just happened. Fans in the lower corner of the arena began yelling to get Scott's attention and pointing at a girl in the crowd wearing a Duke shirt. He took it easy on her, though. And now it's time for the national anthem (further proof that everything to this point was mere prelude).
