NC Central’s Patrick Cole MEAC Player Of The Year

Florida A&M’s Desmond Williams and North Carolina Central’s Patrick Cole have been named the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference’s co-men’s basketball Players of the Week.


Williams, a 6-6 junior forward from Atmore, Alabama averaged 19 points on 64 percent shooting, while also leading the MEAC in blocked shots (5) and tying for second in steals (4) last week.


On Dec. 17, he shot a blistering 81 percent (9-of-11) from the field with a whopping 4 blocks in a 75-72 loss to Jacksonville University.


Williams, a JUCO transfer from Alabama Southern Community College, helped lead FAMU to a 2-1 record in their last three games.


“He has the ability to drive to the rim, and make shots from three point range. He’s [also] a solid rebounder,” head coach Byron Samuels told famuathletics.com. “Desmond can play three or more positions on the floor. He’s coachable, and he is motivated.”


Co-MEAC Player of the Week Patrick Cole, a 6-5 senior guard from Newark, NJ, averaged 20 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 5.5 assists for North Carolina Central in two games last week.


He posted a near triple double with 19 points, 10 rebounds, and 9 assists in a 70-66 loss to LSU on Dec. 13.


On the season, Cole leads the team in scoring and assists, averaging 20.8 points, 6.2 assists, and 7.6 rebounds (2nd best on team).


It was Cole’s second consecutive MEAC Player of the Week award.
