The 6′ 3″ point guard/shooting guard from the University of North Carolina was the recipient of the NCAA Basketball Tournament Most Outstanding Player Award when North Carolina won the 1993 NCAA National Championship. In the final game against the University of Michigan, Williams scored 25 points, hitting five of his seven 3-point attempts…Williams’ Raleigh Wakefield girls were (27-2) in 2018-2019…Ragsdale girls closed at (24-4) last season…Great matchup of girls teams today, in Jamestown….
You may want to get Donald Williams’ autograph today, especially if you failed to grab mine last night, over in Jamestown…You may want to go ahead and get Diamond Monroe’s signature, or that of Mariah Frazier, or the big center Palmore, who is one of the most improved players in our area….Palmore and Maros, give Ragsdale a very solid presence in the post these days…Coach Ben Bradford has done a very good job of balancing out this group of Lady Tigers….
