The 5-foot-8 senior point guard ignited the Panthers (6-0) to the area's No. 1 ranking last week, highlighted by a 26-point performance in a 78-66 home win over then-No. 1 City on Saturday. Williams, a four-year starter who recently committed to Loyola, opened the week on Dec. 14 with 17 points, five assists and three steals in a 61-42 win over Archbishop Spalding. In Saturday's showdown against City, Williams controlled the tempo with smart play throughout -- adding nine assists and four steals for the then-No. 2 Panthers. For the season, Williams is averaging 19 points, seven assists and 3.5 steals per game.
