Derrick Williams was an absolute beast during the Arizona Wildcats incredible upset victory over the Duke Blue Devils in the Sweet 16 Round of the 2011 NCAA Tournament. He was hitting outside shots, rebounding and of course, throwing it down.
Williams finished with 32 points (22 in the first half to keep his team in the game). He went 11-17 from the field, grabbed 13 rebounds, and shot 5-6 from both the three-point line and the free throw line. Incredible.
After Arizona took a decisive lead in the second half, the talk on Twitter turn to his NBA prospects. Even proud Duke alumni, Grant Hill, tweeted this:
Twitter / @grant hill: WOW!! D Williams has to be ...
WOW!! D Williams has to be the 1st pick in the draft.
Congratulations to Derrick Williams and all the Arizona Wildcats fans. It should be fun seeing Hill wearing Arizona gear tomorrow as a result of his bet with former Wildcat, Channing Frye.
Williams athleticism was on full display in this game. This dunk in the first half showed it all.
