Derrick Williams of Arizona is from the Future

March 25, 2011


Being on the east coast, the sun often sets before the ball is even tipped out west. We go to sleep with the day behind us, not knowing that out in the deserts of the southwest and the beaches of the Pacific there is a man fighting for our present, by way of the future. And that man is Arizona's Derrick Williams, whose physique suggests that evolution is not done with the human race, that there is hope for us yet, to press on farther and further. And watching him put up 32 points on the Duke Blue Devils, in the Sweet 16, with thunderous dunks and a spray of three pointers has been like watching some hero walk through a time portal to save a race of mutant basketball fans who long for a new beginning.  The only question that now remains in the Age of Apocalypse, that is the current state of college basketball, is how many X-Men had to die at the hands of Coach K before Bishop foiled him. Because, yes, Coach K is an evil mastermind--and Derrick Williams is blasting biokinetic energy.

Derrick Williams is carrying on tradition. Arizona has a habit of making deep tourney runs when no one expects them to. Then they usually don’t perform up to expectations in the seasons when they are expected to go deep in the tourney. This team’s run reminds me of the ’97 team that caught everyone by surprise. I feel bad for UConn; I think they have no answer for Arizona’s talent.

very reminiscent of the '97 team with Bibby and Miles Simon. Whatever happened to Miles anyway?
