ST. LOUIS (AP) _ It's been nine years since Roy Williams left
Kansas, and he knows the Jayhawks and their fans have gotten over
him.
No matter how much time passes, he'll never be able to say the
same.
Williams would rather top-seeded North Carolina (32-5) face
almost anyone but his ``second-favorite'' team Sunday, a trip to
the Final Four on the line. None of the players who played for him
are still at Kansas, no one on the Jayhawks staff has ties to
Williams and coach Bill Self is building his own legacy in
Lawrence.
For Williams, however, Kansas (31-6) will always be personal.
Williams says he tried to ``give everything'' to Kansas for 15
years, and will always have fond memories of his time with the
Jayhawks.
