Here's an excerpt from the ACC Handbook's team overview story on the preseason #1 Duke Blue Devils ...


Shelden Williams is a soft-spoken sort who prefers to let his long arms and enormous biceps do his talking on the court. But ask Williams about Duke's potential in his senior year and you would think he is preparing for a career in marking and promotions. He has returned to play his final college season instead of entering the NBA draft to be a likely first-round pick and has no problem explaining way.

Williams said an excellent freshman class will give the Blue Devils depth that was sorely lacking despite Duke's success in 2004-05. He said Duke has enough experienced veterans to challenge for the NCAA title.

"I have unfinished business here on my college team," Williams said in July. "What I want to do is win a national championship before I go out. That's one of the things I came back for."
