CHARLOTTE, North Carolina. – Two stellar seasons as an integral backcourt piece were awarded on the national level Monday morning when the NJCAA announced that sophomore guard Cash Williams landed on its All-American Honorable Mention List.
Williams ran the point guard as a freshman leading Arizona Western’s Region Championship team, but transitioned more to an off-ball role as a sophomore and carried more responsibilities as a scorer while leading the Matadors with 14.8 points per game.
Williams played a vital role and hardly came off the court as a result, logging over 34 minutes per game. He still contributed much of his stingy defense, ranking ninth in the conference with 1.7 steals per game, and was a crafty playmaker throughout the year.
However, Cash’s ability to score and create were the most relied upon attributes by the Matadors and he delivered monster performances in home wins against Cochise and Eastern Arizona in the first half of the season.
His 31 points on the road against Tohono O’odham lifted the Matadors in a tight game as he continued to display an improved range from the perimeter. Cash chipped in 17 as Arizona Western upset top seeded Cochise in Douglas to make the program’s 4th straight Region I Final.
Cash Williams finishes his two years at Arizona Western with over 14 points per game while averaging over 4 assists.
Arizona Western College is one of the top community colleges in Arizona. The college boasts partnerships with all three state universities that include face-to-face classes in Yuma.
