The Princeton Tigers of Minnesota have had a program changing season going 18-7 thus far with a talented group of players that includes junior shooter Adam Williams. Adam’s game has evolved.
“So far this year everything is going really well and a lot better than almost all of us expected,” Adam told NHR this week. “We are currently the number 1 seed in our section and we are hoping to make a deep run in sections and hopefully a state trip.
“My numbers this year pretty similar to last years but all of us as a team have gotten better this off-season so there’s not as much on my plate as I had last year.”
Adam is scoring 16 plus a night while post Jon Stimmler is scoring 17.4 a night and guard James Flicek putting up 14.4 a game. Adam is scoring like he did a year ago, but has more help. And he’s been more efficient and doing more on the floor.
“Right now in my career, I feel like my basketball IQ has gone up tremendously,” Williams said. “Previously I’ve been known as just a shooter with an average defensive presence. Since last AAU season, my coaches have been pushing me to be more of a scorer rather than just a shooter. Then moving into the high school season my high school coach has been putting me on other team’s main guys.”
Adam is happy about his improvement but his team’s progress has him even more excited.
“Going into the rest of the season and into sections, we are hoping for a state trip,” Adam stated. “Princeton hasn’t had a state trip in a really long time and us guys want to put Princeton onto the map and not be that team other teams look down on.”
Williams has recently taken a visit and is starting to receive interest letters.
“I’ve gotten a couple letters from different colleges throughout the year so far. A couple weekends ago me and two teammates Jon Stimmler and James Flicek went on a visit to the University of Jamestown.”
