Tide's Williams SEC Women's Player Honoree

Alabama sophomore Ashley Williams was named the Southeastern Conference Women’s Basketball Player of the Week, which was announced by the league office on Monday morning.

The forward from Covington, Ga., averaged 21.3 points and 8.3 rebounds per game for the Crimson Tide last week and was instrumental in Alabama going undefeated at the Hall of Fame Women’s Challenge in Lawrence, Kan., picking up wins against Kansas, Georgetown, and Temple.

Williams scored 20 or more points in three of the four contests, including a career-high 26 against Jacksonville State earlier in the week and added her second double-double of the season and seventh of her career with 20 points and 11 rebounds versus the Owls. She was 72.1 percent from the floor, hitting 31 of 43 shots and averaged a team-best 31.8 minutes of action per game.

Catch Williams and the rest of the Tide on Wednesday at Foster Auditorium against Alabama A&M. The game is slated to tip off at 6 p.m. CST.
