Besiktas was led by 50 points from NBA All-Star, Deron Williams of the Nets. Above, Williams drives by Dale (No. 12). Below, some highlights from the game.

Lou was playing some decent d on him too. It just shows you the difference between D1 and NBA skill.

This is why, unfortunately, no one from Cornell's Sweet Sixteen squad will ever play in the NBA. Dale, Wittman, and Foote played a team game. Guys like Williams are "me first" players. He's the kid in fifth grade who hogs the ball during recess. I'd rather play for Gottingen and lose than be on a team with this chump.

HAHA! "Me first" player? That would be a good argument if he didn't average over 10 assists/game last year. Nice try buddy...

I am as big a Cornell fan that you will find, and have followed the team closely for the past 30 years. I graduated in the late 1980's, make it back to Ithaca for games every year, saw us clinch the league at home in '08 against Harvard, was in Providence in '10 when we beat Brown, and traveled to Anaheim for the Stanford game, as well as Jacksonville and Syracuse for our greatest moments.

I'm also an NBA fan, follow the Nets, and think that anyone characterizing Deron Williams as a "me first" plsyer who "hogs" the ball, and is a "chump" is way, way off base. Don't criticize a true star, because he had the skill to pour in 50 in a league that is not the NBA. Watch him play, look at his assists numbers, and then make those statements. You'll see they're ridiculous.

This all said, I think it would be spectacular if any of our guys got the opportunity to plsy in the NBA.
