College basketball's identity is tied closely to its coaches. These are among the game's most important names of the coming decades.
With offers from Ole Miss and Georgia also on the table, former Virginia Tech forward Landers Nolley, a former ESPN 100 prospect, elected to transfer to Memphis on Monday.
On a special episode of Courtside, Seth Greenberg runs his conversation with Gary Williams from the most recent episode of The Sports Rivals Podcast. Seth and Gary discuss their time playing against each other in the ACC, that time Gary accused Seth of making Dorenzo Hudson to throw up, the double-overtime water main game and how Seth emulated Gary's formula for success (1:03). Later, Seth and producer Taylor dig a little deeper into the 2010 Virginia Tech-Maryland game that was delayed after a beer truck ran into a fire hydrant (34:25).
Virginia Tech ACC All-Freshman selection Landers Nolley II has entered his name in the transfer portal, sources told ESPN's Jeff Borzello.

Kihei Clark knew exactly what he was going to do when he took an inbounds pass in a tie game on the road and 11 seconds racing quickly off the clock.
It has been an odd season for college basketball's most storied conference. ACC coaches want you to know the season isn't over.
Cassius Stanley scored 21 points and made a season-high five 3-pointers to help No. 6 Duke beat Virginia Tech 88-64 on Saturday night.
