Former Florida Gator women’s basketball star Ronni Williams has high hopes of continuing to play basketball professionally. Williams’ resume during her time at Florida makes her a strong prospect.
In her senior season, Williams without a doubt rose to the occasion. After the team lost a key player early in the season, Williams took charge. This was never more evident than in the Gators’ conference game at Vanderbilt. Williams scored a career high 43 points and added 14 boards to lead her team to a 93-73 victory. Williams lead the Gators in scoring on the season with 19.2 points per game.
- First team All SEC
- Third player in program history to lead the team in scoring for three consecutive years
- Only Gator to have three or more 30 point games in single season
Had the same dream for 18 years and now it's about to come true today . #HeIsGood

Life After College
In a Q&A Wednesday afternoon, Williams said that she hopes to play in the WNBA’s 34-game season and then go overseas to continue playing. She said that [playing professionally] has always been a dream of hers. Williams also added that since the season has been over, she has been working out and practicing a lot of on-court drills.
