CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Longtime North Carolina women's assistant coach Andrew Calder says he's focused on keeping the Tar Heels on course until head coach Sylvia Hatchell can return from treatment from leukemia.
Calder said Tuesday he's focused on implementing the plan Hatchell had already put together for molding a team featuring a recruiting class ranked No. 1 nationally by ESPN.
It's unclear how long Hatchell will be out but Calder said "we will be on schedule" when she returns.
Calder has been an assistant to the recently inducted Naismith Hall of Famer throughout her 28-year tenure with the Tar Heels.
He said he has the same philosophy as Hatchell, promising the Tar Heels will continue to fast break and try to pressure opponents defensively.
