Third takeaway from Duke basketball secret scrimmage against Villanova

This is purely speculation and an observation, but in the 4-minute highlight package from Saturday, Mark Williams seems noticeably missing.

The ACC All-Freshman Team player was only in a few clips in what was available on social media.

Villanova does not have a traditional center on its roster, perhaps the reason Williams was not in many highlight clips, but it was strange not to often see a player that figures to have a major role for the Blue Devils this season.

Mark Williams posted 23 points and 19 rebounds in Duke’s final game of the season against Louisville in the ACC Tournament and is on the shortlist of breakout candidates around the country this season.

Perhaps it was just the footage that the team released, but the lack of film on Williams was noticeable.
