Trophy star Jamal Williams back for another season with Wolves
11:48am Friday 18th July 2014 in Sport
JAMAL Williams has followed captain Alex Owumi by re-signing for Worcester Wolves.
The Canadian, named Most Valuable Player in last season’s British Basketball League Trophy final triumph in Glasgow, will return to the University Arena club for a second season.
Owumi will be back for a third term as Wolves bid to build on their most successful ever campaign.
Small forward Williams, whose brother Kai was also with Worcester last season, led the way in Trophy final with 26 points, including a 10-point burst in as many minutes late on.
The 27-year-old averaged an overall return of six points and four rebounds last season, while being on court for just over half of the 40 minutes in the games he played.
Director of basketball Paul James said: "Jamal joined us last year after spells with several BBL sides. I knew when we signed him that the BBL had not yet seen the best of him.
“He’s always been a solid player, but he had the chance to go beyond that with us. He grabbed that chance with both hands and was a fundamental part of our success.
"It’s great that he’s back on board for another year and is ready to help our quest to continue winning trophies.”
Williams added: "I’m looking forward to seeing familiar faces and to another season with the Wolves.
"I’m very thankful for another opportunity to play in an amazing arena and in front of the best fans in the BBL, the Wolf Pack.”
