Ronni Williams Named AP First Team All-SEC

Senior Ronni Williams has been named Associated Press First-Team All-Southeastern Conference, the news media announced today.

Williams, who became the first Gator in program history to lead the SEC in scoring with 20.1 points per league game, also was voted First-Team All-SEC by the league’s coaches. This is the first time the 6-1 guard/forward has garnered a spot on the league’s top team.

Williams’ Season at a Glance

  • First Gator to lead the SEC in scoring (20.1 ppg in SEC games)
  • Scored 20+ points in 13 games this year (14 in her career)
  • Highlight game was a 43-point, 14-rebound performance in the win at Vanderbilt (January 29)
  • Her 43-point effort was the third highest total in program history and the most by an SEC player this season
  • First SEC player to drop 40+ points and 10+ rebounds in a game since 2003
  • Ninth Gator to score 1,400+ points and collect 800+ rebounds in a career
  • Third Gator to lead the team in scoring three different seasons (Olympian Tammy Jackson and WNBA star Merlakia Jones), and the first to do so in three consecutive years
  • Just the fourth Gator to record at least four 30+ scoring games in a career – and Williams accomplished all of hers in one season
  • In addition to leading the Gators this season in scoring with 19.2 points per game (20.1 ppg in SEC games), Williams also led the squad in rebounding (7.8 pg) and free throw percentage (73.4%) and was second for assists (70) and field goal percentage (53.8%).
