I enjoyed reading that. I was only 7 at the time, so I did not know about this interaction, nor have I watched this game. I went back and looked at KU's path to the final and wow did they have a hell of a journey to get there.
S16- #3 (2 seed somehow) Indiana
E8- #2 Arkansas
F4- #4 UNC
Championship- #6 Duke (loss)

So Williams had to face Bob Knight, Nolan Richardson, Dean Smith, and Mike Krzlkjsdflkjki in order. I'll bet he wasn't excited when he saw the bracket.

Thanks for posting this, I love historical things like this that take me down these kinds of rabbit holes. I especially enjoy the interactions between coaches and officials that I don't realize are happening or happened.
