The Tar Heels next travel to Boston College on Tuesday, while the Tigers head to Notre Dame on Wednesday.
UNC would take advantage of some Clemson miscues down the stretch and a Johnson three-pointer gave the Tar Heels a 75-68 lead with 2:16.
Roy Williams explains he is alright and is "not going to croak on anybody" as it was vertigo that made him fall during North Carolina's game vs. Clemson. The seven-point lead seemed like enough, especially after Clemson missed a three-point attempt and UNC would grab a defensive and offensive rebound.
As far as actual basketball is concerned, though, Clemson will have to refrain from turning the ball over and will need Elijah Thomas to stay out of foul trouble.
No. 5 UNC beat Clemson 81-79 on Saturday night. That was also when Williams went down, the team saying he turned his head quickly and experienced an episode of vertigo, something he's had happen before during games.
Elliott, who threw for 2100 yards and 11 touchdowns during the Tar Heels 2-9 2018 campaign, will be foregoing his final year of eligibility in order to take the assistant graduate position.
North Carolina: The Tar Heels struggled at times with Clemson's defense, which ranks third in the ACC in limiting points. Elliott was in grad school at North Carolina and had one more season of eligibility remaining. The Tigers fall to 17-12 and have only one win (vs. Virginia Tech) against a surefire NCAA Tournament team this season. But it was another heart-breaking close call for a club that's lost five ACC games by eight points or less. A similar situation occurred with Williams in 2016.
