Troy senior forward Zay Williams was named to the All-District 23 Second-Team this week by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC).

Williams also earned All-Sun Belt honors this season as he averaged 12.2 point and 7.1 rebounds this season.

“Zay Williams is very deserving to be named to the NABC All-District Second Team,” Troy coach Scott Cross said. “Zay has helped us in every possible way: offense, defense, rebounding, leadership, toughness, on the court, off the court, great teammate, extremely coachable, reliable, competitive, winner, etc.

“Zay is a big reason why we had back-to-back 20-win seasons. He has helped build the foundation of a successful program, and I am very thankful and honored to have had the opportunity to coach him here at Troy over the past four years.”

He finished his Trojan career just one rebound shy of the school record for total rebounds and became just the 11th player in the school’s Division I history to surpass 1,000 career points. His 1,209 career points ranks seventh in Troy Division I history.
