Quotable Roy

Roy Williams attended a ceremony honoring Tyler Hansbrough in Poplar Bluff, MO which included renaming the basketball court at his high school, Tyler Hansrbough Court. Roy took the opportunity to take a shot at Mike Krzyzewski as it pertained to the recruitment of Hansbrough:

Williams spoke of his memories of coming to Poplar Bluff during the recruiting process.

He made a visit one fall to watch Hansbrough lift weights and shoot baskets. After a visit to a golf course with some Poplar Bluff coaches in the afternoon while Hansbrough was in class, Williams returned later that evening to watch a Mules pickup game.

"I couldn't talk to Tyler," Williams said. "It was during the time period that we couldn't talk to individuals, you could only watch him play.

"I remember walking back and saying to John David, I said, 'Coach would do me favor? Would you tell Tyler that I was here from weights at 7 a.m. and I was here for shooting at 7:45 a.m. and came back to the scrimmage at 7 p.m. and [Duke coach Mike] Krzyzewski's butt was just here for the pick up games.'"

That should serve as a strong indicator why Roy is presently owning Duke and its coach.
