Williams Looks to Play in the WNBA

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.

Gator Greatness

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.

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.
