Duke has been playing well these past few game with Elliot Williams in the game he is averaging 8.1 points in the last ten games in those ten games Duke has only lost once. Elliot Williams is undoubtedly better than senior guard Greg Paulus who has been playing better but still is not as good as Elliot. Elliot brings a totally new dimension to the team with his ability to penetrate into the lane for easy points and kick outs to Scheyer and Singler for 3.

Elliot is also averaging 3.6 rebounds per game despite only being 6'4''. He has an amazing vertical and can really get up there to grab tough rebounds. Elliot also is an excellent defender he is easily the best defender on the team he has helped Duke by being able to pressure the ballhandler and force him into mistakes which can lead to Duke fast break points.

I know Ty Lawson is considered the best point guard in the nation but this kid here has great potential to become a even better point guard than Ty Lawson. So look for Coach K to rely on this very mature freshman to help lead Duke to a National Championship run.
