UNC head coach Roy Williams stays silent on Trump White House visit

In the aftermath of North Carolina's sixth national championship victory, head coach Roy Williams remains non-committal when asked about a potential team visit with President Trump at the White House.

Williams and his Tar Heels squad defeated Gonzaga in a 71-65 victory on Monday night, ending UNC's March Madness run defined by redemption after last year's devastating loss to Villanova. After his third national title win, Williams declined to comment on the prospect of heading to the White House to meet with Trump.
