Gary Williams' most memorable basketball moments

September 29, 2010|By Jeff Barker | The Baltimore Sun

Worst losses: Michigan State, last year's NCAA tournament; Duke in the 2001 Final Four; Duke in the 2001 regular season ( Blue Devils rallied from late, 10-point deficit).

Memorable shots: Drew Nicholas buzzer beater against UNC-Wilmington in 2003 NCAA tournament for Williams' 500th win; Juan Dixon and Steve Blake hit back-to-back 3-pointers against Connecticut in the 2002 NCAA tournament. "That got us to the Final Four -- those two shots," Williams said.

Back-breaking moment: "When I was at Boston College, we lost to Syracuse. Pearl Washington hit a shot from about 60 feet to beat us in the Dome," Williams said.

Underrated team: "I always thought the team that never got the credit they deserved was 2003 after the national championship. We lost [Chris] Wilcox, Juan [Dixon] and Lonnie Baxter and we were a jump shot away from going to the Elite Eight," Williams said.
