The Tar Heels and coach Roy Williams planned Wednesday to travel to Raleigh for a celebration with the state's General Assembly and Perdue. The team won the NCAA title three weeks ago by beating Michigan State 89-72.
First, the Senate and House will hold separate floor sessions and pass a resolution honoring the team. Perdue invited them to the Executive Mansion to recognize the Tar Heels' accomplishments later in the day.
