Williams on The Dawn Staley Award Mid-Season Watch List


TAMPA, JAN. 29, 2016  USF senior guard Courtney Williams (Folkston, Ga.) has been named to the Dawn Staley Award Mid-season Watch List as announced by the Phoenix Club of Philadelphia Thursday.


Williams rose to second in the all-time career scoring record books Wednesday and is just 47 points away from reaching 2,000 points. Williams is on pace to become just the second player in program history to score 2,000 points and just the fourth basketball player, men or women, to reach the milestone.


Williams is currently tied for 11th in the country in scoring and leads the American Athletic Conference at 21.7 points per game. The senior ranks fourth in Division I in field goal attempts (395) and fifth in field goals made (168). Williams is also on the Naismith Trophy Mid-Season Top-20 and the John R. Wooden Player of the Year Watch List.


Also on the list from The American are Moriah Jefferson of UConn and Jada Payne of East Carolina.


In 2013, the Phoenix Club of Philadelphia established the Dawn Staley Award to recognize the nation’s best guard in Women’s Division I college basketball. The Dawn Staley Award is given annually to a player who exemplifies the skills that Dawn possessed throughout her career; ball handling, scoring, her ability to distribute the basketball and her will to win. In 2013, the inaugural award was presented to Skylar Diggins (Notre Dame). Last year, Odyssey Sims (Baylor) captured the award.


The 2016 award recipient will be announced during the Final Four weekend and the award ceremony will be held at the prestigious Union League of Philadelphia at a date to be announced.
