The National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) has announced Madison College's Aniah Williams as the Division III Women's Basketball Player of the Week for January 21-27 (Week 11). The award is the first for Williams and the first for the WolfPack this season.
Williams was a scoring machine as she opened the week with 34 points in a win at Milwaukee Area Technical College, then followed it up with 41 points in a road overtime victory over Joliet Junior College that broke the Madison College women's basketball single-game scoring record. In those two games, the native of Beloit, Wisconsin, made 27 of 55 shots with seven 3-pointers and 14 of 20 free throws. Additionally, Williams posted a double-double against JJC with 11 rebounds, giving her an average of 8.0 rebounds for the week, as well as 3.0 steals per game.
Williams, who ranks 13th nationally with a 22.6 points per game average overall, is currently scoring 29.0 points over her last seven games. She and the WolfPack own a 14-6 mark overall. They will return to action on Saturday, February 2 at Harper College.
