CHANGING TEAMS: UM men's basketball coach Gary Williams' contract with Nike expired August 31, and while the team will still wear Nike shoes this season, it "could wear Under Armour shoes next season." Williams: "I think I was with Nike 19 years, so it was hard to leave. But I really think, for the school, this is what you want" (WASHINGTON POST, 9/3).
