In addition to leading the team in scoring Williams was almost perfect in the game shooting 8-for-9 from the field and led the team in rebounds with eight and tied for the lead in assists with three. He tied for the game lead in scoring with Indiana State’s Cooper Neese.

Duquesne’s next game will be at home against Winthrop (5-6) on December 21st at 2:00 p.m. There will be a lot of basketball action that day at Duquesne, as the women’s team will host a game against Howard at 11:00 a.m. right before the men’s game.

*This was the third-straight double-digit game for Joe Reece.
