UAB stuns Tar Heels as disciple tops his mentor

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Jerod Haase didn't look like a guy celebrating his biggest win as a head coach. That's because it came at the expense of his mentor, Roy Williams.

Haase's UAB held off Williams and No. 16 North Carolina (4-2) for a 63-59 victory Sunday. Chad Frazier scored 25 and the Blazers (6-2) made three free throws over the final 6.6 seconds to preserve their first win over a ranked team in four years.

"This is the definition of bittersweet," said Haase, who played under Williams at Kansas and coached under him at Kansas and North Carolina. "It's a big win for us. I was proud of our guys, but for coach Williams to come here and bring North Carolina, that's pretty special.

"I hated having to go shake his hand, but it's a special deal."
