Good morning Badger fans! Grab your hot cup of Joey and read about one of Wisconsin’s freshman phenoms, Serah Williams, grabbing yet another award in her impressive debut campaign.
Serah Williams wins weekly Big Ten honor for freshman
For the second time this season, Wisconsin’s Serah Williams was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week.
One of the lone bright spots in an otherwise disappointing season, Serah averaged 18.5 points per game, 5.5 rebounds per game, and a monster 3 blocks per game.
Williams, out of Brooklyn, New York by way of Toronto, Canada, leads the Badgers in scoring with 13.3 PPG, is tied for the rebounding lead with Avery LaBarbera, and is the team leader in field percentage at 55.6%.
She has posted on two double-doubles on the season, including a 31-point, 13 rebounds OT game against Michigan State back on January 11th. Three separate times Williams has swatted four blocks, the more recent game was Sunday’s 76-67 loss at Rutgers.
She opened the week on Wednesday, a 90-67 Wisconsin loss to #10 Ohio State. In 29 minutes, Serah had 23 points on 9-12 shooting, four rebounds, two steals, and two blocks, and went 5-10 from the foul line.
She closed out the week in the aforementioned 73-67 loss at Rutgers. In 36 minutes on the court, she tallied 14 points, going 6-10 from the field. She also chipped in seven boards and four blocked shots. She made her only two free-throw attempts.
With an impressive crop of incoming recruits next year, as well as a legitimate star in the making, head coach Marisa Moseley definitely has the Lady Badgers headed in the right direction.
