Winthrop’s Erica Williams has been selected the Big South Conference Freshman of the Week for the second straight week and fifth time this season, it was announced today by the league office.
The 5-foot-10 forward from Rex, GA, averaged 21 points and 9.5 rebounds per game, and shot 56 percent from the floor in Winthrop’s two games last week. She highlighted her week with 24 points on 69 percent shooting to go along with 10 rebounds, five helpers and two blocks in the win over Coastal Carolina on Jan. 25. The 24-point and 10-rebound performance was her sixth double-double performance of the season and second straight.
She also notched 18 points, nine rebounds, two assists, three steals and a block against Campbell on Jan. 23.
Williams and her Winthrop teammates will be back in action twice this week as they travel to Charleston Southern on Thursday for a 7:00 p.m. game and Presbyterian College on Saturday for a 2:00 p.m. contest.
