'Each day you get better'

Roy Williams said during his Monday teleconference that junior Jawad Williams continues to improve from the effects of the concussion he suffered more than a week ago.

"The doctors tell me that each day you get better from the effects of a concussion," the UNC head coach said. "Jawad did not play very well; his numbers were not nearly where they usually are."

Williams totaled three points and five rebounds in Saturday's loss at Kentucky. His season averages are 16.4 points and 7.8 rebounds.

The Tar Heels play host to Miami on Wednesday evening at the Smith Center.

"We've got to get our guys healthy and at full strength," Williams said. I would think that everybody is going to play.

"We can't afford to have any more [injuries]. Hopefully, these few days were good for [Jawad]."
