Yet another former Aggie will be continuing his basketball career after graduating from Utah State. Former WAC Defensive Player of the Year Pooh Williams recently announced via facebook that he will be playing in the NBA D-League this fall. It is not yet known which squad Pooh will be on, but he will apparently find out on November 1st.
A four-year starter for Utah State, Pooh ranks #4 all-time in career games played behind only Tai Wesley, Tyler Newbold, and Jaycee Carroll.
Pooh was well known at Utah State for his defensive prowess and athleticism. He was routinely assigned with the task of shutting down the opposing team’s biggest offensive threat, and more often than not succeeded in doing so. Pooh will also be remembered for his high flying dunks, whether they be in traffic, on the back door alley-oop play, or on the fast break. Throughout his career Pooh also developed a very good outside shot and ranks #8 all-time in 3-point field goals made. Pooh also became a clutch performer often taking over games down the stretch and hitting clutch free throws. Pooh’s passing ability was also a strength and he ranks #24 all-time in career assists with 242.
Good Luck Pooh! And keep up the good work!
