UH-Hilo men’s basketball standout Williams named PacWest Player of the Week
University of Hawai‘i at Hilo men’s basketball standout Darren Williams put up numbers that grabbed attention last week in the Vulcans home 97-79 victory against Hawai’i Pacific University. That attention was enough for him to be named the Pacific West Conference Player of the Week for Dec. 5-11.
Williams, a 5-foot, 8-inch senior guard from Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., played in just the one game last week and was almost perfect. He had a season-high 28 points, missing just two shots in 39 minutes. Williams was 11-of-13, including 6-of-7 from three-point range. He also had five assists and three steals to help lead the Vulcans to a 3-0 mark in PacWest play and a 5-1 overall record for the season.
The third-year UH-Hilo standout leads the PacWest in assists (5.7) and three-point percentage (0.553) and is second in steals (2.5) and fourth in scoring (19.2).
