Arizona's Derrick Williams announced his presence to the world in the NCAA Tournament with ferocious dunks and surprising three-point shooting. Williams may have been one of the nation's best kept secrets, terrorizing Pac-10 teams in the anonymity that is the West Coast. Those of us that watched him play all year -- or over the last two years, even -- knew exactly what he was capable of, but the rest of the world found out as Williams had a coming out party against Duke.â†µ
Williams and Arizona are gone, but they put on a show in March Madness and went down swinging against Kemba Walker and the UConn Huskies. Go ahead and add Williams dunking on not one, but two UConn players to his list of accomplishments.â†µâ†µ
It's one thing to dunk on a guy, but dunking on two guys? Well, that's just over the top. Charles Okwandu and Roscoe Smith lost the battle, in this case, but won the war as UConn advanced to the Elite Eight with a 65-63 win. But Williams announcing his presence to the world was one of the more entertaining storylines of the 2011 NCAA Tournament.
