Jay Williams told the story of the day....

Last week, he was playing golf on the Duke campus course when he ran into Jordan. (One would think that Jordan, a North Carolina alumnus, would not be welcome at Duke). Jordan wanted to play Williams and gamble $100 per hole.

``I said 'Look, man, I don't have that kind of money to throw around. I'm already in debt,''' Williams said, adding that he had only $20 in his pocket at the time.

Another player with a story to tell was Tskitishvili, who wanted to set the record straight regarding his history as a dancer. One of the stories circulating about Tskitishvili was that he developed superior footwork by learning ballet as a youngster.

``It's a native Georgian dance. It's like ballet, but it's not ballet. You dance with a big knife,'' he said.
