Santa Barbara, CA –Senior Alan Williams and the UCSB Gaucho’s hosted the University of Seattle on Thursday evening, and the 87-46 blowout win by UCSB was highlighted by another double-double for Alan Williams (16 points and 12 rebounds in only 25 minutes). That allowed Williams to break the UCSB career record for rebounds, set by Eric McArthur is the 1986-1990 seasons.
Alan, known to his teammates as “Big Sauce”, is leading the team is scoring (19.3), rebounding (13.3), field goal percentage (45.7 percent) and blocks (2.9). He also holds the UCSB records for scoring in a game (tied with Orlando Johnson at 39 points), and blocks in one game (8). In watching him play over his three plus years at UCSB, it is obvious that he has an NBA skill level as he consistently dominates college big men in the basket area. UCSB has played a very difficult early schedule, including Kansas and he continues to perform at an extremely high level Kansas (22 points, 13 rebounds, four blocked shots vs. Kansas).
Williams is constantly double teamed, and willingly and unselfishly passes out of those double teams. Alan could be UCSB’s first player drafted in the first round since Brian Shaw, a UCSB Gaucho legend, who is now the head coach of the Denver Nuggets. Williams is featured in the a recent edition of Sports Illustrated. Check it out for an interesting read.
