Only two things sit on Latta's nightstand. Here's the first: a picture of her and the Tar Heels after their 2005 ACC Tournament Championship. Gotta be nice to look at that before going to sleep.

After the Tar Heels' win against Tennessee on Dec. 3, guess who was there to congratulate Latta and her team? None other than the Kat Williams. When Latta has time to chill -- which isn't much -- she pops in her DVD of choice.
