INDIANAPOLIS – Trevion Williams picked up a pair of first-team All-District accolades as both the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) and United States Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) recognized the junior center from Chicago.
Williams had a big year for the Boilermakers, helping Purdue to a No. 4 seed in the upcoming NCAA Tournament. He is averaging 15.6 points, 9.0 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game while shooting over 52 percent from the field. He was previously named first-team All-Big Ten by league coaches and is one of five finalists for the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Award, given to the nation’s top center.
Williams enters the NCAA Tournament with 10 double-doubles this season, including six 20-10 games, the second most among any player in the NCAA Tournament field. His 20 career double-doubles rank 16th in school history.
Williams is coming off a monster game against Ohio State in the Big Ten Tournament, scoring 26 points with 14 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 blocked shots, the only player since 2010-11 to reach those marks in a postseason game.
Williams and his teammates take on No. 13-seed North Texas in Friday’s first round of the NCAA Tournament.
