Rattlers aim to contain Williams
TALLAHASSEE, Florida -- Not for one moment would coach Clemon Johnson or his FAMU basketball players pretend that they have the solution to contain South Carolina State’s center Hezekiah Williams.
Sure, the Rattlers beat the Bulldogs and Williams a week ago in Orangeburg, but not before he used all of his 6-foot-11, 225-pound frame to power to a double-double of 26 points and 12 rebounds.
For that reason, Williams is one of the biggest concerns for the Rattlers heading into tonight’s game at the Lawson Center.
“We have to push him and bump him away from the basketball because once he catches the basketball we could only stand there and watch him take the shot,” Johnson said.
Williams is averaging 5.9 rebounds per game. He has 118 on the season, with 74 of those coming on the defensive end. His counterpart Trey Kellum is averaging 6.4 rebounds per game for the Rattlers.
