There are all the time dangers when conducting a reside interview with an athlete proper after a giant win. There could possibly be cursing or smack discuss (truly good) and even the dreaded second the place you name the participant or crew by the mistaken title.
However relating to UNC, the most important threat seems to be celebration crashing.
After the top-ranked Tar Heels dispatched No. 16 Iona, 88-73, within the first spherical of the NCAA Match, Scott Van Pelt organized an interview with UNC senior star Luke Maye. Solely difficulty? The remainder of the crew joined in as properly.
Kudos to SVP and Maye for taking advantage of the group interview, however in case you had been searching for some perception into UNC’s efficiency from Maye, you had been left unfulfilled.
This harkens again to the eve of the 2016 Nationwide Championship sport when prankster and present Brooklyn Nets ahead Theo Pinson crashed Roy Williams’ press convention. It was a humorous second in a seemingly-stressful time, which showcased North Carolina’s relaxed angle forward of an NCAA last it wound up successful, 71-65, over Gonzaga.
Is Maye’s interview one other good omen for the Tar Heels throughout March Insanity? It’s too early to inform after just one spherical, however UNC is clearly feeling relaxed as soon as once more.
