Listen to what @UNC_Basketball head coach Roy Williams had to say about collapsing on the court late in the first half of Saturday’s win at Clemson. He says it’s vertigo and something he also dealt with in 2016.@WSPA7 pic.twitter.com/gt8wijcbqi

It’s good to see Williams is going to be okay. It’s always very scary whenever anybody collapses for no apparent reason.
You could clearly tell in the video that he was struggling big time as he was helped off of the court.

It was also pretty classy from the Clemson crowd to show their support for Williams as he got help. There are lot of idiots in college sports fandoms, and I wouldn’t have been surprised at all if some people had starting booing.
Luckily, that wasn’t the case. Let’s all hope this was just a one off incident, and Williams will return better than ever.
