First Team: Kiana Williams, Long Reach (junior, guard)

The reigning Howard County Times/Columbia Flier Player of the Year continued her impressive varsity career, and again led the Lightning to one of their most successful seasons in program history.

Statistically Williams is a game-changer, and did a little bit of everything on both sides of the floor. She is a match-up nightmare for opposing defenses, as she can beat you off the dribble, but can easily step back and knock down a shot anywhere on the court. She has great vision and improved her assist number from last season to 5.3 helpers per game, which led the league. She paced her team in virtually every category this season including points (15.2), deflections (5), steals (4.5), free throw percentage (66), second in 3-pointers made (26) and rebounds (8.2), all from the point guard position.

Williams totaled 380 points this season and will enter her senior campaign just 79 points shy of reaching the 1,000-point milestone.

“She is literally a game changer,” Long Reach coach Kelli Cofield said. “Pound for pound, skill for skill, she puts up the numbers for us.”
