CORPUS CHRISTI – Joy Williamson has been named the GoIslanders.com Student-Athlete of the Week, presented by Pepsi. Williamson earned the award after leading the men's basketball team in scoring last week.
In his first two games back after a concussion, Williamson led the Islanders in scoring in both of the team's games. The junior came off the bench to provide 12 points on 3-of-6 shooting against Lamar, then played 34 minutes off the bench against McNeese State, matching his career high with 15 points and adding six rebounds.
Williamson and the rest of the men's basketball team will be in action on Thursday, Feb. 14, when they take on Central Arkansas in Conway, Ark.
