CSN Washington dot com spot here with our Coach Gary Williams arts reporter third straight week as big east player of the week. They get ten straight wins as they get now close to conference tournament time do you go to him if you're his coach John Thompson the third and say. Let's take a little bit easier as you get down the stretch let's rest a little bit what do you tell a guy who you know the spotlight is our focus on him. Well I I don't think in a position to John Thompson can really sabre when a restaurant like that. I think they talk quite a bit all during the season and it's just about. You don't just get ready for this defense because they're really gonna look at you are you might have to give it up the first couple times you touch it for you to get double team. What you do that the defense kind of goes back to where they're supposed to veto would take more -- the start of the game but they gradually relax a great thing with that Dicey in quarters so far. His ability to adjust to whatever the defense is doing like what he did in the overtime against Connecticut just recently -- few players have that ability. And that's why he's been part of the week the last three weeks. ACC player of the week is Ryan Kelly from Duke. Missed seven weeks coach comes back 36 points career -- how does he change would do can do personal which it would help guys out -- -- match -- where -- -- -- 36 but. What he does for Duke is really us. It expands the court for the office but the words calmly and so I will now have easier looks but you can't double team him he can't leave Kelly obviously often the three point line. -- -- -- really benefit -- cook will be able to penetrate with the basketball a lot easier because kell always made it can't play in the way he has to stay out more and Kelly. So it really helps their offense in a lot of different ways and last question exactly Indiana Duke Kansas -- down one through five. How much emphasis of the head coach you put on winning your conference term. What you get I don't think you can tell players to go three quarters Peter told teams have you know we've got to be careful when you run your play so you just play. And then if you get -- like in 2002 we got -- -- -- -- BC tournament for turned out to be a blessing because we had a couple guys who sprained ankles things like that. And they healed by the time the NCAA tournament started so all those teams you mentioned the -- and a great position where they don't have to win their conference tournament. And hopefully they just go play if they win it great if not. It won't change your -- that much or anything else that's a nice position to be and that's the coach fairways. CSN Washington dot com.
