Adaysha Williams Named Choice Hotels NEC Rookie of the Week

Adaysha Williams (LaCrosse, Wis.) has been more than adequate while playing the role of point guard in the absence of veteran Ericka Norman. The 5-foot-8 freshman averaged 16.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.0 steals per contest a two-win week that ended with the Pioneers in sole possession of second place in the NEC standings. Helping the Pioneers repay Wagner for a loss on Staten Island earlier in the month, Williams tallied 17 points and seven boards in a 63-46 triumph at the Pitt Center. Two days later, she shot 72 percent and scored 16 points as Sacred Heart took down Bryant in what began as a battle of 5-2 NEC teams. No NEC player (with at least 15 FG attempts) shot as well as Williams last week. The Choice Hotels NEC Rookie of the Week shot 65 percent (15-of-23) from the floor.
