On the off day between North Carolina’s Sweet 16 and Elite Eight games, head coach Roy Williams was joined by five of his players – Justin Jackson, Kennedy Meeks, Joel Berry II, Marcus Paige, and Brice Johnson – for a press conference with the media. Midway through, sophomore Theo Pinson showed up to ask why he wasn’t invited. Brice Johnson lost it.
Williams jokingly roasted Pinson, who is the team comedian.

"You guys don’t have to put up with him. I have to put up with him every dadgum day. You’re doing a nice job, Theo. I appreciate you. Like I told you, I never have to congratulate him. He congratulates himself. I’ve been coaching 28 years I’ve never had one friggin’ player walk up in the middle of a damn press conference. That’s the guy who mimicked Coach Larry Fedora last might in the locker room. You guys want to see something funny, you ought to see that."
