MACON, Ga. - Lipscomb guard Trey Williams scorched the nets last week and led the defending regular season champion to an undefeated start in conference play this year to earn Atlantic Sun Conference Player of the Week honors as announced by the league office on Monday.
Williams capped a spectacular week with a career-high 27 points including eight three-pointers as Lipscomb extended their winning streak at Allen Arena to 14 games in a 68-54 win over UNF. Two days earlier, the senior played 37 minutes and contributed 18 points and five assists to help the Bisons hold off an upset-minded Jacksonville team. Lipscomb also added a non-conference win over Winston-Salem State to begin the week. For the week, Williams averaged 17.3 points per game while draining 13-of-22 3-point shots (59.9 percent).
For the year, the Memphis, Tenn., native leads the A-Sun in scoring (18.4), three-point field goal percentage (49.3) and three-pointers per game (4.12). Williams majors in Mass Communications. This is the first A-Sun Player of the Week honor for the senior.
The Atlantic Sun Conference hands out Player of the Week awards weekly during the 2006-07 men's basketball campaign.
The 12-member league headquartered in Macon, Ga., consists of Belmont, Campbell, ETSU, Gardner-Webb, Jacksonville, Kennesaw State, Lipscomb, Mercer, UNF and Stetson with Florida Gulf Coast and USC Upstate beginning competition in 2007-08.
