#TBT: Katy Williams Makes SCAC History

#TBT: Katy Williams Makes SCAC History

On February 6, 2010, Austin College women's basketball player Katy Williams made Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference history, breaking the conference's record for most rebounds in a career.

On that day, Williams scored 31 points and grabbed 16 rebounds on her way to breaking the SCAC rebounding record in an 87-70 victory over Colorado College. Williams snagged an incredible 11 offensive rebounds in the victory, while also 12-of-22 shots from the field. That season, the senior from Sulphur Springs was named an All-American by in addition to being named the SCAC Player of the Year.

Williams finished that season averaging 16.2 points and 13.3 rebounds-per-game, and was the only player in the conference to average a double-double. She also led the conference in field goal percentage, shooting 55.8% from the field, and was in the top 15 in the SCAC in assists.

The 'Roos finished 18-8 that season, with Austin College sweeping the major awards on both the women's and men's sides, with Williams and Kola Alade sweeping Player of the Year honors while coaches Deb Hunter and Rodney Wecker were each named SCAC Coach of the Year.

Williams finished her career with 1,519 points and 1,083 rebounds. Her career rebounding mark was broken in the 2014-15 season, but she remains second all-time in that category and is one of only three players in conference history to finish her career with at least 1,000 points and rebounds. This summer, she is set to be inducted into the Austin College Athletics Hall of Honor.
