Buzz Williams met with the media on Monday afternoon in Cassell Coliseum. He spoke for approximately 30 minutes.
Williams was asked about many topics, including transfers, his roster, his coaching staff, etc. Here are some notable quotes.
On transfers: “I think it’s become an industry-wide issue. I’m not sure what the answer is. I think the last time I checked there were 625 [transfers].”
On C.J. Barksdale: “I think C.J. has probably had an often injured career. Throughout the entire spring semester he continued to stay in a boot…to be honest with you, I think he was at the point in his life and his career where he was just tired of being hurt.”
On Ben Emelogu: “I’ve known Ben since he was in middle school. I know all of Ben’s people. Ben’s mom, all of them. I love Ben. As it played itself out, it was probably best for Ben to go closer to home.”
