UC-Santa Barbara's Alan Williams has won the StatSheet Big West Player of the Week award for the week ending March 4th. StatSheet's Big West Freshman of the Week is Isaac Fotu from Hawaii.
Williams was the Big West leader in rebounding (12.5 per game) and free throws (9.0 per game). He also put up a strong showing in shooting (50%), assists (3 per game), and scoring (23 pts per game). The UC-Santa Barbara sophomore put these numbers up in a win versus Cal State Northridge and a loss to Hawaii.
Williams contributed 14 points and 9 rebounds in 34 minutes in a 70-66 loss to Hawaii. He then led all scoring and rebounding with a 32 point and 16 rebound performance in an 83-74 victory against Cal State Northridge.
This is a familiar honor for Alan Williams, who has been named StatSheet Big West Player of the Week three times. He has also been named a runner-up once and received an honorable mention. The runner-up this week is our own J.T. Adenrele. Honorable mention goes to Chris Eversley, a junior from Cal Poly.
