Q&A with Demetric Williams

Demetric Williams, an incoming freshman on the WSU basketball team, joins a crowded backcourt. There should be plenty of competition for playing time at guard and small forward. Williams is one of three freshmen who play those positions, not to mention returners Toure Murry, David Kyles, Graham Hatch and Clevin Hannah.

Q: Facebook or Twitter?

A: I don’t have any of that. I don’t even use the Internet, really. Everybody nowadays uses the Internet, Facebook, MySpace but I don’t use none of that. I use the phone.

Q: Give the Kansas Jayhawk fans a scouting report on Elijah Johnson, your high school teammate at Cheyenne High in Las Vegas?

Q: What is your impression of pickup games in the month you have been in Wichita?
