9 Years Later, Kansas Still Special To Williams

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- It's been nine years since Roy Williams left Kansas, and he knows the Jayhawks and their fans have gotten over him.

No matter how much time passes, he'll never be able to say the same.

Williams would rather top-seeded North Carolina (32-5) face almost anyone but his "second-favorite" team Sunday, a trip to the Final Four on the line. None of the players who played for him are still at Kansas, no one on the Jayhawks staff has ties to Williams and coach Bill Self is building his own legacy in Lawrence.

For Williams, however, Kansas (31-6) will always be personal.

Williams says he tried to "give everything" to Kansas for 15 years, and will always have fond memories of his time with the Jayhawks.
