UNC Fans Upset Roy Williams With An "Overrated!" Chant Saturday Night

This chant by UNC's fans did not sit well with Roy Williams on Saturday night.

Roy Williams had a pretty great Saturday night, watching his team defeat Duke at home to complete an ACC champion regular season.

There was one moment that had him upset, though.

During the contest, some of the Tar Heels' fans chanted "overrated!" at Duke star freshman Harry Giles, a five-star recruit who has dealt with injuries and not lived up to the outrageous hype surrounding him.

This chant did not sit well with North Carolina's head coach.

Williams reportedly screamed at UNC's student section to stop the chant.

Williams said post-game that it was a stupid chant. "Don't piss off the other team by being stupid," Williams said of the "overrated" chant.

Giles, the No. 2 overall recruit in the 2016 class, is averaging 4 points and 4 rebounds a game for the Blue Devils.

UNC is the No. 1 seed in the ACC Tournament, while Duke is the No. 5 seed. We could get a rematch in the semifinals.
