Adaysha Williams Earns First NEC Rookie of the Week Nod

Adaysha Williams (LaCrosse, Wis.) has worked her way into Sacred Heart's starting lineup, and the rookie guard has produced.  Williams has scored in double digits twice over the season's first four games earning her first NEC Rookie of the Week award.  Helping the Pioneers even their record at 2-2, she scored 10 points, grabbed five rebounds and made three steals in a 76-73 road win over MAAC member Saint Peter's.  Williams shot 50 percent (4-of-8) from the field in the victory. The performance came three days after the Pioneers nearly posted a win over a Big East member. Williams recorded six points and three assists in a 62-59 overtime setback to Villanova on Nov. 20.
