CANMORE, Alta. — Based on how the 2017-18 season has started, the future looks bright for the Duquesne Dukes.
The Dukes have one of the top young duos in the Atlantic 10 Conference, in sophomore guard Mike Lewis II and freshman guard Eric Williams Jr. Both players rank one and two, respectively, in terms of scoring leaders for the Dukes through eight games, while Williams is the team’s leading rebounder.
This past week, Williams continued his strong play to open up his collegiate career with the Dukes. While Duquesne came into the week riding a three game losing streak, their fortunes quickly took a turn for the better.
When the week was all said and done, the Dukes had a three game winning streak, and the play of Williams was a big reason for their successful week.
The native of New Haven, MI came into the week with two double-double performances to his name. Over the last three games, he doubled his season total, posting another pair of double-doubles while helping the Dukes to three wins over the past seven days.
For his efforts this past week, a stretch of games that saw him average a double-double, Duquesne freshman Eric Williams Jr. has been named the College Court Report Freshman of the Week for December 4 – 10, 2017!
