Win or lose Saturday night at Duke, Williams has turned in an absolutely marvelous regular-season coaching job with these Tar Heels, and I'd vote him not only ACC coach of the year but national coach of the year.

The ACC's regular-season title won't be at stake in the 9 p.m. game at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Duke wrapped up that and the No. 1 seed for the conference tournament a long time ago. But UNC will be playing for second place, and it is the ACC's hottest team in light of its sixth straight win and Duke's loss.

THE BIGGEST CONCERN: The offense.
