For the second time this season LSU’s Mikayah Williams was named the Southeastern Conference’s Freshman of the Week.

The No. 7 Tigers (15-1 overall) have started SEC play 2-0 with wins over Missouri and Ole Miss, and host Texas A&M at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center.

Williams ranks sixth in the conference in scoring at 16.9 points, No. 8 in shooting percentage at 50.8%. She’s also second in 3-point shooting at 45.5%

The native of Bossier City reached the 20-point mark for the fifth time this season, helping LSU to a 84-73 win over Ole Miss. She knocked down four of her team’s eight 3-pointers and made four steals.

With LSU locked in a battle in the third quarter and Ole Miss taking a 53-52 lead at the 4:19 mark, Williams came with a steal and pulled up for a 3-point basket that further fueled a 9-0 run for a 61-53 lead with 2:48 left in the quarter.

Williams had 11 points with seven assists, six rebounds, two steals in a block in LSU’s 92-72 win over Missouri last Thursday.
