RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -State lawmakers and Gov. Beverly Perdue will bask in the glow of the national championship won by the men's basketball team at the University of North Carolina.
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.
