UNC Pulls Players Off Court Prior To Game Ending For Safety Reasons

Florida State was absolutely crushing the number three ranked University of North Carolina 90-57 with just over 14 seconds left in the game, and the FSU coach came up with a smart idea.  Seminoles head coach Leonard Hamilton met with UNC head coach Roy Williams near the scorers table and suggested that Roy send his players to the locker room early to avoid the thousands of FSU students and fans who were preparing to storm the court.  Roy WIlliams agreed and sent all but five of his players to the locker room.  True to form, the students and fans rushed the court, and the decision to pull the players early was definitely the correct one.
