Jan. 6, 2003
Chicago, Ill. - After a career night versus the nation's top defense, University of Illinois at Chicago forward Armond Williams was honored as the Horizon League Men's Basketball Player of the Week on Monday afternoon.
Williams almost led the Flames past visiting Butler on Jan. 4 with his second straight double-double performance. He finished the contest with career bests of 26 points and 11 rebounds in the 68-65 loss to the Bulldogs. Williams was 10-of-14 from the field and also tallied two blocks and two steals in the game.
For the season, the Hillside, Ill., native ranks second in the Horizon League in field goal percentage (.663) and ranks fourth in rebounding (6.9 rpg).
Williams has been on fire the last four games for UIC, averaging 16.5 points and 9.5 rebounds per outing during the stretch.
He is the second Flame to earn player of the week honors this season with Martell Bailey receiving the award back on Dec. 2.
The Flames (7-4, 1-1) will be back in action on Thursday, Jan. 9, when they welcome league-leading UW-Milwaukee (11-3, 3-0) to the UIC Pavilion at 7:00 p.m.
