ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE: Univ. of North Carolina men's basketball coach Roy Williams yesterday said playing in the first Carrier Classic last November was "off the charts." Williams said, "The actual experience with all of the military personnel -- we were trying to say thank you to them, and they were saying thank you to us. ... We are playing a basketball game, providing some entertainment and they are risking their lives and everything else to protect us and allow us to live the way we do in this country. It was the neatest experience I have had in my entire life” (“The Jim Rome Show,” 2/7).
