A "Gary Williams Court" At Comcast Center?

There's a "Lute and Bobbi Olson Court" at Arizona. There's a "Bobby Cremins Court" at Georgia Tech's Alexander Memorial Coliseum. There's a "Coach K" court at Duke. Other schools, too, have named basketball courts after coaches.

Do you want to see a "Gary Williams court" at Comcast Center? The idea has certainly been out there for a long time -- long before Williams retired. I heard Jimmy Patsos promote such a plan when Williams was honored before last season at the Sports Legends Museum's Hall of Legends.

I've long thought it would happen. I still think it will. I also know there's a faction that has quietly raised concerns. Some of those concerns have less to do with Williams than with loyalty to Lefty Driesell, who was 348-159 in 18 Maryland seasons. Lefty's backers believe the old coach didn't get his due after he was forced out.
