VT coach Williams says Alabama is a tough first-round opponent
BLACKSBURG, Va. (WSET) - The Hokies open with Alabama Thursday night in the NCAA Tournament at 9:20 in Pittsburgh, right after the Radford/Villanova game.
Hokies coach Buzz Williams is close friends with Tide head coach and former NBA player and coach Avery Johnson.
Buzz Williams, VIRGINIA TECH HEAD COACH (HOKIES 21-11), said "I've known him for a long time, I absolutely love him. He's done an incredible job at Alabama and I would say they have arguably the number one point guard in the NBA Draft, he signed the Alabama Player of the Year last year, Petty, who can really, really shoot."
