Maryland basketball: Gary Williams on Howard-Turgeon, Maryland-UConn, Morsell's extra year and more

Like everyone else watching, Gary Williams was surprised to see the verbal confrontation between Mark Turgon and Juwan Howard last week at the Big Ten Tournament. "That can happen. I coached in the Big East, the Big Ten and the ACC and it wasn't always pretty. You'd get mad at the other guy, he'd get mad at you. And one thing we would do, and I guess times have changed, you would call each other the next day. One guy would call, the other guy would call. And you'd talk about it. You might yell at each other for the first five minutes of the call, but basically, you'd work it out. Because you're in the same profession, you're trying to win. That's the thing people have to understand. I don't know what was said. Nothing was picked up on microphones or anything like that, so I'm not sure what was said. Those two guys, I know Juwan Howard and obviously, I know Mark Turgeon," he said on the Al Galdi Podcast.

Maryland basketball: Gary Williams on Penn State loss, negative fans, tourney hopes and more

What did Gary Williams think of Maryland basketball's performance during the regular season?. "Well, I think at the start of the year, I believe they were picked 11th by most people in the Big Ten. So they're going to finish eighth, I believe, in the league. And he had a small team this year. He got caught small, he had a couple guys transfer or whatever. And maybe a player didn't play as well as they thought he would when they recruited him, which can happen. And so all the sudden, you're small And I thought they did a really good job, especially early on, figuring that out and how to play and get his best players out on the court.
