What Insiders Say

New Mexico coach Craig Neal

"He's going to be our consummate playmaker in the sense that he's going to be able to make plays with getting guys shots, and also being able to score.”

 

What Outsiders Say

Colorado State coach Larry Eustachy

“Sometimes you catch these guys like lions, like Williams was [in scoring 46 points against the Rams], but he was completely unstoppable. I’m anxious to watch the film and see how many shots were contested and how many shots weren’t. I thought our team tried, we’ll just have to watch the tape.”
