Can Williams spark UNM?


Kendall Williams is one of the most explosive players in the Division I ranks. The 6-foot-4 guard initially committed to UCLA, but as detailed by George Dohrmann is his Twitter feed, UCLA coach Ben Howland pulled his scholarship very late in the recruiting period, a move that spooked other Pac-12 coaches (who didn't have enough time to properly evaluate the guard) and forced Williams to evaluate other options. While New Mexico is often a difficult team to watch -- the squad only converts 45 percent of their twos and posts under one point per possession in Mountain West play -- Williams is capable of offensively dominating a game. A good example, then, is his effort in a win over Colorado State: Williams scored 46 points, scorching the Rams from deep with his ten made threes.
