Denzel Robinson UpdateNice moment tonight for coach Robinson's son Denzel, who scored his first points as a Tarheel:
"I can't put it into words," Denzel said. "It happened so fast. It's so special that my dad was here to see it, because he's seen me go through my ups and downs with basketball. Later tonight, maybe it will sink in. Right now, I still can't believe it."
When it happened, Hairston took a step down the bench and delivered a boisterous high-five to Steve Robinson, who was off the bench and grinning as broadly as he has in ten years in Chapel Hill.
You have to know Steve Robinson to really appreciate the moment. This is someone who is probably the coolest person on the Carolina team--and that includes the players who are the toast of Chapel Hill. He is always dressed impeccably. He is always in control. Except, that is, when his son--who he's essentially watched grow up inside the Smith Center--scores his first points as a Tar Heel.
"I don't know if I can find the words to describe it," Steve Robinson said. "It's one of those moments that I'll remember for the rest of my life. You think back to all the years that he played basketball, all the things you've been doing together. For him to get a chance to score in a game, words can't describe it."
