Arsenal Acquires Jamaal Willliams
ANAHEIM, Calif. Feb. 14, 2007-The Anaheim Arsenal announced the acquisition of forward Jamaal Williams, a 6-foot-6, 240-pound rookie from the University of Washington. Williams played on the Golden State Warriors summer league team and most recently played professionally in France.
As a senior at Washington, Williams averaged 13.8 points and 4.7 rebounds. During his junior season, he helped the Huskies to a 29-6 record, tying the school single-season victory mark. That year, Washington earned a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament and advanced to the Sweet 16.
Williams attended Corona Centennial High School where he earned Co-CIF Player of the Year and Riverside County Player of the Year awards while averaging 22 points and eight rebounds per game as a senior. He is Centennial's career scoring and rebounding leader.
"We're excited to have a local product with Pac-10 experience joining the team," said Arsenal interim head coach Reggie Geary. "We look forward to seeing what he can bring-on both ends of the court-as we make a strong push toward the playoffs."
Forward Corsley Edwards has left the team after averaging 14.2 points and a team-high 7.5 rebounds.
