Led by Their Dreams: The Inside Story of Carolina's Journey to the 2005 National Championship

Overview

At the start of the 2005 season, the North Carolina Tar Heels were a talented yet dysfunctional team made up of gifted yet unfocused athletes. Head coach Roy Williams had his work cut out for him: to piece the team back together and inspire the players to use their adversity as the surest path to victory.

Overview

At the start of the 2005 season, the North Carolina Tar Heels were a talented yet dysfunctional team made up of gifted yet unfocused athletes. Head coach Roy Williams had his work cut out for him: to piece the team back together and inspire the players to use their adversity as the surest path to victory. "How else could it have ended?" reflected forward Jawad Williams. "We've been the lowest and now we're the highest." On April 4, 2005, Carolina defeated Illinois in the championship finals.

Led By Their Dreams, a celebration of the Tar Heels' 2005 season, features interviews with the players and coach Roy Williams. It also includes Williams's famous inspirational quotes--his "Thoughts for the Day"--which often foretold something about to happen and always served to push the team toward better teamwork, and, ultimately, the championship.

With full-color photographs throughout, postseason notes, a list of the honors and awards received by key players, and two CDs containing the Tar Heel Sports Network call of the championship game, this is the ultimate book for fans to remember the best team of 2005 and its return to glory.
