Sorry, Tar Heel fans, but the rumors aren't true: Jawad Williams hasn't grown to 6-10 since his senior year in high school. The touted freshman wing is 6-8 – "with shoes on," second-year UNC coach Matt Doherty said last week. But he's still expected to make immediate contributions in Chapel Hill.
"Jawad will have a chance to really help us this year," Doherty said. "A lot will be determined after practice starts, but he's been good in individual instruction."
