Williams will be king of the court when Maryland takes on Duke
Question of the Day
Williams was the right guy for the job all those years, perpetually prepared and eager to maximize the ability of his team. Wednesday is different; even if some of his contemporaries — Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski, Syracuse’s Jim Boeheim and former Georgia Tech coach Bobby Cremins — have received the same honor, there isn’t a way to fully prepare for this sort of recognition.
“I’m kind of playing this by ear and just seeing how it is,” Williams said. “It’s certainly a great honor. I think it’s something you never thought would happen. You just coach. You don’t think of things like that. The idea that the board of regents and people like that gave it the OK certainly means a lot.”
NOTES:Williams‘ pregame ceremony, which is expected to last about six minutes, begins at 8:45 p.m. Maryland officials are urging fans to arrive early.
• Turgeon said he was unsure if freshman Alex Len, who suffered a right ankle sprain in Saturday’s loss to Temple, will play. Len did not practice Monday.
