I spent some time with C.J. Williams the other week and came away from our chat thinking exactly what Dan Wiederer writes this morning in The Fayetteville Observer: Williams, just a sophomore, could emerge as a team leader this season.
Lowe now wants his sophomore shooting guard to showcase his heightened confidence to not only become a reliable playmaker but an energizing force for the whole team.
“C.J. knows the right things to say and the right things to do, there’s no question about that” Lowe said. “Now will he emerge as a leader? I’m not sure yet. He absolutely knows the right way. But the other part about being a leader is you have to do it the right way every time. As a leader, I can’t tell you not to take that bad shot if I’m taking bad shots. I can’t tell you to stop turning it over if I’m turning it over. If you’re going to talk the talk, you better walk the walk.”
We’ll have an article on Williams in the Winter issue of NC State magazine. h/t to Pack Pride poster rcaseyf.
