Eagles ink two-time NJCAA All-American

Abby Williams

EVANSVILLE, Ind.The University of Southern Indiana women's basketball team announced that 6'0" junior guard/forward Abby Williams (St. Joseph, Illinois) has signed a national letter of intent to play for Head Coach Rick Stein's Screaming Eagles in 2008-09.

A two-time NJCAA Division II All-American at Kankakee Community College (Kankakee, Illinois), Williams had a superb sophomore season in 2007-08. She was named the Illinois Junior College Player of the Year after averaging 15.7 points and 6.8 rebounds per game.

Williams led Kankakee to back-to-back national title game appearances and a two-year record of 57-10. Kankakee was 27-7 in a 2006-07 season that saw Williams net second-team All-America honors. She earned first-team All-America honors this past season as she led Kankakee to a 30-3 mark and its second straight NJCAA II Region IV title.

In 2007-08, Williams scored a career-high 29 points on two occasions and became the third player in Kankakee history to earn All-America honors in consecutive season.

Williams came to Kankakee from St. Joseph-Ogden High School (St. Joseph, Illinois) where she earned varsity letters in basketball, softball, and volleyball.

"We are very excited to have Abby join our team and our Screaming Eagle family," Stein said. "Abby is a proven winner and has been the leader on two straight national finalist teams.

"She is a versatile player who can shoot, drive, and also make plays in the paint," Stein continued. "Abby has the ability to defend on the perimeter as well as in the post, and will make an immediate impact on our team."
