Williams named A-10 Player of the Week

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

After posting a pair of double-doubles in two Spider wins this past week, University of Richmond junior forward Derrick Williams was named the Atlantic 10 Player of the Week, the conference office announced on Monday.

In the team's double-overtime victory over William & Mary, the junior posted second double-double of the season with 17 points and 11 rebounds.  The Harlem, N.Y. native then followed that effort with a career-best 26 point outburst in the win over Wake Forest, grabbing 10 rebounds in the win.

For the week, Williams averaged 21.5 points and 10.5 rebounds in the two victories, shooting 11-of-15 from the field and an impressive 19-of-22 from the free throw line.

The Richmond Spiders men's basketball team will be back in action on Tuesday when it travels to Norfolk to face in-state rival Old Dominion at the Constant Center.
