Gary Williams: Kentucky Could Beat The Washington Wizards

Former University of Maryland head coach Gary Williams told ESPN 980 yesterday that he believes the Kentucky Wildcats could beat the Washington Wizards.

As transcribed by the Washington Post:

“I’ll tell you, you walk into some gyms — and that would be one of them, Rupp Arena — and you better be tough,” Williams said. “Regardless of how good you are, you can get taken right out of the game with the crowd. You just don’t feel right, you can’t play your game.

“I think one game — Kentucky couldn’t play in the NBA or anything like that — but one game at Rupp Arena, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Kentucky win one game. Because you’re gonna have five players off that team playing in the NBA, and probably playing significant roles in the NBA. And that’s why I say that, for one game.”

Last week, television analyst and former NBA legend Charles Barkley said that he thought Kentucky could beat the Charlotte Bobcats or the Toronto Raptors. The Wildcats recently earned a bid to the Final Four, and have lost just two games this season.

Currently the Wizards have the second worst record in the NBA, at 11-38. Their best player, John Wall, played for Kentucky two years ago before being drafted No. 1 overall by the Wizards.
