Michael Carter-Williams played best ball following devastating fire — Cuse Clicks


Zach and Carter-Williams’ twin 14-year-old brothers were watching Syracuse’s second-round game with Cal at the time. Fifty-eight seconds into Syracuse’s 66-60 victory that set up the Sweet 16 showdown with Indiana, Zach noticed smoke coming from the kitchen and the whole house ultimately went up in a blaze. Carter-Williams and his family lost all their belongings, sentimental and otherwise, but fortunately no one was seriously hurt. “We’ve been going through some tough times and I’m just trying to bring a smile to my family’s face and have them enjoy themselves,” Carter-Williams said.
