North Carolina didn't win the national title Monday. It won the national title last June, in Tar Heels Coach Roy Williams' office. You sometimes forget the fragile nature of these championship runs. Three stars from last year's Final Four team -- Ty Lawson, Wayne Ellington and Danny Green -- all had petitioned for the NBA with the option of pulling their names out before draft day. The players decided to come back, but Williams needed to know why.
