Meanwhile, Reese spelled starter Neal Brown for much of the game and made the most of his time with eight points, five steals and three rebounds.
Herbert said he gives credit to the attitude of his players like Brown, who may sit as other players enter.
"They're unselfish kids," he said, "just like Neal Brown gets 22, 23 minutes a game, but (Thursday), he probably got 12 to 14, but he's happy as all get out out there, because his team won. The unselfishness of this group has been the best I've ever seen since I've been coaching, just the most unselfish bunch that I've been around."
With Reese and Williams in the game, SC doesn't lose a step offensively as the pair work the interior, Herbert said.
"Plus (with) their speed and quickness, we don't really lose anything defensively when they go in," he said. "We actually probably pick up a little bit rebounding wise when they're both in the game together."
Herbert added his bench includes even more players who can add meaningful minutes, though the opportunity didn't present itself Thursday.
"We got guys that didn't get in the game tonight that I wouldn't be afraid of putting in under fire," he said. "Tre Clark has played a lot this year. Kentre Grier, my freshman, along with (Brandon) Knapper, my other freshman, those guys can play.
"It's just that we're loaded with seniors who have been with me for four years and just have all that experience. They're as talented as those seniors, but they just haven't had the time in the program to develop yet, but their time will come. Their time will come certainly."
For now, the Black Eagles know their time to win is here thanks to team attitude and depth.
"Even when the starters come off the floor, we have a man on the bench that can do his job, if not even better," Williams said.
Win as one, not with one. That strength should pay dividends as SC marches toward the State Tournament once again.
