Her second honor of the season, Williams (6-5, New Orleans, La.), a redshirt freshman center, has shown progressive improvement with each outing and again hit a high point this week in performances against North Carolina Central University (NCCU) and Savannah State University (SSU).

Williams played a major role in aiding B-CU to its first conference victory of the season, over NCCU, and was a significant contributor in the Lady Wildcats’ close push to rally against SSU.

She averaged a double double of 11.5 PPG and 10.5 RPG while shooting 69.2 percent, including a career best 14 points with 10 rebounds and six blocks against NCCU. She nearly repeated for consecutive double doubles, logging nine points and 11 rebounds at SSU.

Her now-47 total season blocks not only ranks Williams fourth on the B-CU season blocks record book, but over the last two games she has risen to ninth among the B-CU top 10 career shot blockers.

Williams previously earned MEAC Defensive Player of the Week accolades on Dec. 16, after B-CU’s program-first victory over Jacksonville.
