Tim Williams signs with South Alabama

Former Oakland guard Tim Williams has signed to play with South Alabama after a one-year stint at Motlow State Community College. The following is a press release from South Alabama athletics.

Press release: Williams signs with South Alabama
MOBILE, Ala. — Tim Williams (Pontiac Northern) has signed a National Letter-of-Intent to play basketball at the University of South Alabama for the 2009-10 season, the school announced Tuesday.

Williams is a 6-foot-4, 205 wing and is transferring from Motlow State Community College in Lynchburg, Tenn. He played his freshman season at Oakland University. He will have two seasons of eligibility remaining.

He enjoyed one of the best seasons in MSCC school history last year, becoming the first player in Motlow’s 40-year history to rank in the top 10 in scoring, scoring average, rebounding, rebounding average, assists and assists average all in the same year.

He led the Bucks by averaging 21.4 points and 8.1 rebounds per game and converted a team-high 55 3-pointers and 52 steals.

Williams also inserted his name in MSCC’s single-game records with 38 points (eighth), 20 rebounds (fifth) and seven steals (fourth).

“Tim has great size and the athletic ability to be able to play two or three positions,” South Alabama head coach Ronnie Arrow. “He’s very versatile and has the ability to go inside or outside. He can shoot the 3 and can guard on the perimeter or inside. His signing will enable us to use him in a number of ways — as a defender and a scorer.”
