Thursday, Alan Williams was the one begging to be heard. He gave the defense a halftime tongue-lashing.
“We came in and we didn’t draw anything on the board, we just said we weren’t getting it done,’’ Kevin Williams said. “We could draw up all the plays we wanted, and if we didn’t execute, they were going to run us out of here. Either we were going to get embarrassed or stand up and fight.’’
They did both, in turns.
As the last minutes ticked away and Washington drove, Frazier gave Kevin Williams another chance to second-guess a coach.
Williams’ brain told him the timeouts were ill-advised, but his body welcomed them.
“At first, you’re like, ‘What’s going on?’ but in the back of your mind, you’re like, ‘Yes, I got a blow!’ ” he said. “It paid off in our favor.
“If it hadn’t, we’d be discussing something different.’’
