North Carolina basketball: Roy Williams dabs after win over Duke

  North Carolina beat Duke, 76-72, on Saturday to capture the ACC regular season title.

North Carolina accomplished many things on Saturday. For starters, the No. 8 Tar Heels grabbed a 76-72 road win over conference and in-state rival Duke in Cameron Indoor. On top of that, North Carolina also locked up its first ACC regular season title in four years and a No. 1 seed in the conference tournament next week.

And to celebrate? Why not bring back the dab?

The Tar Heels could barely contain themselves as they entered their locker room following the win. From Roy Williams dabbing to dancing to empathic hand slaps, North Carolina left Durham all sorts of happy. The Tar Heels finished the regular season 25-6 and 14-4 in the conference and will face either Pittsburgh or Syracuse at noon on March 10 in the ACC tournament in Washington, D.C.
