Maye is a tweener: while he rebounds like a big man three inches taller, he has built his game around turnaround mid-range jumpers and pop-out threes. Over 32 minutes, Williams drained half of his 12 three-point attempts, three of which came over a 90-second span around the midpoint of the first half. The Blue Devils are 45-40 versus the Tar Heels with Mike Krzyzewski as the head coach.

This one is a little more obvious: North Carolina was outstanding on the glass. "(Brazeau) said, 'You've got a tough stretch.' I said, 'No joke.' But it sounded like something that the league needed to do, so I said OK". But (ACC associate commissioner Paul Brazeau) called and said we've got a stretch for you that's going to be very hard, but we need to do it. But Paul called and said we've got a stretch for you that's going to be very hard but we need to do it. "That was the biggest part of the game".
