UNC's Williams competes at Final Four -- in a food fight

North Carolina coach Roy Williams' team lost in the NCAA regional finals. But that didn't keep him from competing at the Final Four over the weekend - in the kitchen.

This story in the Houston Chronicle details how Williams went head-to-head with Virginia Tech coach Seth Greenberg in a cookoff in Bracket Town. Both coaches made steaks, mashed potatoes and grilled artichokes - and apparently, Williams' potatoes put him over the top. He won a $5,000 donation to Coaches vs. Cancer.

When Williams was handed the check to give to Coaches vs. Cancer, according to the Chronicle, he had some good-natured parting words for Greenberg.

"This summer when I see you at places, I won't talk about anything from the basketball court," Williams said. "But I will talk about how I beat you in the kitchen."
