MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) has announced its student-athlete of the week selections, naming Morrisville State junior forward Rhamel Williams (Bronx, N.Y.) the men’s basketball athlete of the week for the week ending January 13.

Williams had a conference record breaking performance for the Mustangs last week, swiping a collegiate and conference-best 11 steals in the Mustangs 72-57 victory over Lancaster Bible College on Saturday, where he also finished with 16 points, a team high seven rebounds, three assists and a block. His effort came on the heels of a five steal performance in a 101-71 victory over SUNY IT, where Williams also snagged a game high 11 rebounds and tallied six points in just 20 minutes of action.

He finished the week averaging nearly a triple-double of 11 points, nine rebounds and eight steals, while shooting 56 percent (10-for-18) from the field in just 26 minutes per game.
