ATHENS ----- Junior guard Ezra Williams, who led Georgia in scoring in both of its victories last week, was named today as the Southeastern Conference Player of the Week, according to an announcement by the league office in Birmingham.
This week's award covers games that were played between November 19-25. During that span the Bulldogs went 2-0, with a 73-59 win over #16 Georgetown and a 94-73 win over Georgia Southern in Savannah last Wednesday.
Williams, from Marietta, Ga., pumped in 20 points in the Georgetown game, getting the first "double-double" of his career in adding 11 rebounds, which was also a career high. Against Georgia Southern, he poured in 25 points, 17 of which came in a blistering first half, when he sank four of five 3-point shots.
Williams' appointment marked the second time of his career that he has won the honor. The SEC named him its Player of the Week last season for the week of Jan. 8-13, during which he scored 48 points in wins over Auburn and Ole Miss.
