Claremont High grad honored for her play at APU

Claremont High School graduate Amber Williams, a senior at Azusa Pacific University, has been named Golden State Athletic Conference women’s basketball player of the week.

The 6-foot center scored 51 points and grabbed 33 rebounds as No. 13-ranked Azusa Pacific won both of its conference games last week. She shot 16-for-35 (.457) from the field and 19-for-23 (.826) at the line and recorded double-doubles in both games.

Williams tallied 30 points and 19 rebounds at Point Loma Nazarene and 21 points and 14 rebounds against San Diego Christian.

She leads the GSAC in scoring and rebounding and has 12 double-doubles for the season.
