Wildcat Men's Basketball Signs Dominique Williams to 2012-13 Roster

ELLENSBURG, Wash. (Apr. 25) -- Central Washington University men's basketball coach Greg Sparling announced Wednesday that point guard Dominique Williams has chosen to finish his collegiate basketball career as a Wildcat.

"We are excited about the addition of Dom (Williams) to our roster," Sparling said. "He has an outstanding feel for the game offensively with the ability to shoot the ball with range, and he has the potential to put pressure on the ball defensively."

Williams is a 5-foot-10 guard who can play both the point and shooting guard positions. Originally from Tacoma, Wash., where he prepped at Curtis High School, Williams will have two years of eligibility remaining for CWU. Prior to joining the Wildcats, he played two seasons for former CWU assistant coach and current TCC mentor Carl Howell.

"Dominique is a winner," Howell said. "His best games came in our most important games, especially in the (NWAACC) championship."

In the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges (NWAACC) championship game in March, Williams led the Titans with 36 points, five rebounds and five assists in their 110-98 victory over Chemeketa Community College (Ore.) to earn NWAACC Tournament MVP honors. Overall, he helped TCC to a 26-5 record in his sophomore campaign, and the Titans were a combined 52-7 over the two seasons that Williams served as the team's starting point guard.

"Fifty-two and seven (52-7) in two years as our point guard is a tremendous feat for Dom," Howell added. "It was a reflection of his competitiveness and character as a leader on our team."

Williams averaged 12.7 points per game over two seasons with the Titans, scoring 20 or more points on 10 different occasions, and breaking the 30-point plateau twice.

Howell also stated that Williams was drawn to Central Washington University by Wildcat associate head coach GE Coleman, who showed interest in the guard very early in his two years at TCC.

The Tacoma native joins a Wildcat team with familiar faces, as he teamed previously with current Wildcats Jordan Coby (Tacoma, Wash./Wilson HS), Brandon Magee (Spanaway, Wash./Bethel HS) and Chris Holmes (Seattle, Wash./Franklin HS). Coby and Magee will both be seniors at CWU in 2012-13, while Holmes will be a redshirt junior.
