Williams collects third A-Sun newcomer laurel

MACON, Ga. – After leading the team in both games last week, Lipscomb freshman guard Josh Williams has been named the Atlantic Sun Conference Newcomer of the Week for the third time this season.

The Jackson, Miss. native averaged 18 points per game as the Bisons clinched a berth in the 2014 A-Sun Championship.  Williams opened the week with 14 points and six rebounds on the road at Mercer.

The newcomer then poured in 22 points and added nine rebounds on Sunday against Kennesaw State as Lipscomb claimed its league-best ninth road win.  Williams added six assists and three blocks as part of his sixth game with 20 or more points.

The Bisons return home this week hosting Northern Kentucky as part of the A-Sun’s Friday Night Game of the Week on CSS.
