CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- It began as soon as Harrison Barnes stepped to the free-throw line with just under six minutes remaining on a warm night in South Florida with unranked North Carolina trailing Miami by a point. In truth, it had begun as far back as late November. He had already heard it from Champaign to Charlottesville, and now, as he the stood at the line, Barnes, the first freshman ever voted preseason first-team All-America by The Associated Press, was hearing it again:

In mid-interview for a new movie last week, actress Salma Hayek suddenly shrieked and scrambled out of her seat, over the shoulders of co-star Maya Rudolph sitting next to her. Clutching frantically at Rudolph and another co-star, Maria Bello, she uttered a blood-curdling scream, "Somebody do something!"

SI.com: Controlled chaosupdated: Wed Feb 21 2007 13:44:00

In 10 years at Sports Illustrated I've probably spent more time with North Carolina's Roy Williams than any other college basketball coach. I've profiled many of his players, once spent 10 days behind the scenes with his 2002 Kansas team, and wrote a long feature in 2003 about his internal struggle to decide if he should leave Lawrence for Chapel Hill.

SI.com: Fast and Furiousupdated: Mon Feb 19 2007 09:33:00

It was a simple exchange, really, a moment that laid bare Roy Williams's vision to create the most lethal attacking weapon in college basketball. In the fall of 2002, not long after rejoining Williams's staff at Kansas, Steve Robinson stood next to his boss during a preseason practice and blanched at the scene before him, a chaotic blur of bodies in motion. The Jayhawks hadn't operated this way seven years earlier, when Robinson had left to coach Tulsa (and later Florida State). "I'm a little uncomfortable with how fast you're playing," Robinson told Williams, who cackled like a mad scientist. "Good," Williams replied. "Because I want to play even faster."
