Nicholls’ Williams garners Southland Women’s Basketball Player of the Week
FRISCO, Texas – Nicholls State University sophomore guard Tykeria Williams has been named Southland Conference Women’s Basketball Player of the Week, the league office announced Monday afternoon.
A native of Montgomery, Alabama, Williams led Nicholls to a perfect week after averaging 19.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.5 assists in the Colonels’ two victories. She needed only 20 field goal attempts through two games to pour in 38 points, helped by a 7-12 effort from behind the arc.
Williams started off the week logging just 27 minutes in the 83-45 win over Southern-New Orleans and hit four three-pointers in the first quarter as Nicholls held a commanding 23-2 lead through 10 minutes of play. She followed up with another efficient shooting performance at Jackson State, going 5-11 from the field for 16 points in the 90-64 win. Williams also chipped in with three steals for the week, helping Nicholls to its No. 11 ranking in the NCAA.
Williams is the second Colonel to earn the weekly honor this season, joining Week 1’s winner, Cassidy Barrios.
The Colonels will have nearly two weeks off for final exams before returning to the court on Friday, Dec. 15 at Mississippi Valley State.
