Williams, who helped spark a victory recently over Kenmore East with 13 points and six assists, alsom makes some valuable contributions defensively too. His quickness and speed helps keep the team at a high pace. Previously, Taijay produced 15 points and had seven steals in a victory over Grand Island High School, 94-38.

In addition, against state contender, Jamestown High School, Taijay Williams scored 18 points and handed out five assists in the victory. He was named the game's most valuable player.

WHAT SAL COSTANTINO THINKS OF TAIJAY WILLIAMS' INDIVIDUAL GAME:

"He is a junior point guard who can do several things well on the court," said Costantino. "He is a player who provides a scoring touch on the offensive side.

"He also provides a lockdown mentality on defense."
