ROCH AROUND THE CLOCK

The Kickoff

November 06, 2006|By ROCH KUBATKO

I sense that Maryland basketball coach Gary Williams isn't a big fan of the student newspaper, given his response to a reporter's question Saturday night about Williams perhaps being discouraged by the close margins in the two exhibition games.

"Let's see, it's Nov. 4 ... yeah, I quit," he said. "It's exhibition. I'm not even trying to win these games. Is that a Diamondback question? I go into those games trying to get guys on the court, and I don't always have the right combination for the right situation out there. I'm not discouraged. How can you be discouraged when you're a basketball coach and you've won 560 games? Why would you be discouraged? What's the point in that?"

Williams sweated through two suits during his rant.
