The Quote: “The whole experience was great. The tradition speaks volumes. The fans were very involved and everybody loves basketball there. And that’s my love so that place and me, we get along well. The players are cool. It just was a great night. There was a lot of energy in that building.” — Williams to Inside the Hall after last fall’s Hoosier Hysteria.
The Scout Says: “Mark’s body has changed since his freshman year and he has become slimmer and taller. He has solid hands inside and is already a good rebounder and finisher in the paint. He has solid and improving skills. He can score in the low post and can step out to 17 feet and hit face up jumpers. Mark’s a great rebounder. He’s a solid defender in the paint. Solid athlete, good not great.” – ESPN.com on Williams.
