"Because they can score inside and they've got terrific 3-point shooters, and that may make (the entire Duke team) more difficult to guard than anybody. ... The challenges they pose to you on the offensive end, trying to stop them, is really unlimited."
"I'd like to say on behalf of all our players and coaches, past and present, that Dean Smith was the perfect picture of what a college basketball coach should have been," Williams said in a statement. "We love him and we will miss him."
