RILEY'S ONE SHINING MOMENT
The brackets have been
counted. Some were
shredded. But one came
out on top. Despite pick-
ing Illinois to take it
all, Robert Riley picked
three out of four Final
Four teams correctly on
his way to winning the
Michigan Daily/Papa
John's Challenge and 10
free pizzas from Papa
John's. Eat up, Robert!
And if you can't get
through it all, we're
always hungry at 420
Maynard St. Especially
since Daily staffers were
not eligible to enter. Sad.

leading Indiana to the 1976 title over
Michigan. "He'll win a few more
before he's done."
Head led Illinois with 21 points. He
had a wide-open look at a 3-pointer
that would have tied the game at 73,
but it bounded off. Felton made the
final two free throws and Weber's
magical ride with the Illini wound up
one win short of the real fairytale end-
ing he hoped for.
"It goes down in history," Weber said.
"Not only Illinois history, NCAA history.
Tied the most wins ever, No. 1 for all the
time. You get to the championship game.
You know, I mean, if you're not happy with
this, I feel sorry for you, because life ain't
getting better."
It did get better for Williams, though.
The coach left Kansas to take over
the Tar Heels two years ago, after
the program Smith built had faltered
and fallen to 8-20. Williams took a
ton of heat for leaving the Jayhawks
suddenly after losing in the title
game in 2003 - his fourth close call
at the Final Four.
He defended the move, saying coming
back to his alma mater had always been his
dream.
"The last three or four days, I had five
or six of them call me and wish me good
luck," he said of his former players.
It took two years to rebuild, and this
week he dealt with a more familiar issue:
Did he need to win a title to call his career
a success?
He told the story of Smith insist-
ing he was no better a coach after he
finally won one in 1982, but Williams
conceded that answering that "same
doggone question" did get a little
annoying at times.
When he walked into the interview
room after this win, his first statement
echoed Smith.
"I'm no better coach than I was three
hours ago," Williams declared.
The win gave North Carolina its fourth
overall title, fourth-most in NCAA his-
tory and one more than archrival Duke.
Celebrating in the locker room afterward
were former Tar Heel Michael Jordan and
Smith, the coach Williams patterned his
career after.
