Future Gators player selected to WBCA High School All-America Game



Florida signee Ronni Williams has been selected to the 2013 WBCA High School All-America Game, an honor reserved for the nation’s top 20 high school senior girls’ basketball players.  

Williams, a 6-2 forward from Daytona Beach, is the first Gator signee ever selected for the WBCA High School All-America Game, which began in 1992. The annual High School All-America Game will be played April 6, at the New Orleans Arena, in conjunction with the Women's Final Four.

The top-ranked basketball recruiting prospect in the state of Florida, Williams is a three-time Daytona Beach News-Journal Player of the Year selection and ranked as the No. 13 best player in the country on ESPN’s Class of 2013 national recruiting list. Williams also was recognized by ESPN HoopGurlz Super 60 rankings as the second-best wing-position player in the 2013 recruiting class.

Williams scored more than 2,000 points in her career, and led Atlantic High School to the District 7-4A championship on Feb. 2 with 19 points and 10 rebounds. She is averaging 19.9 points, 10.6 rebounds, 3.2 steals, 3.0 assists and 3.0 blocks per game during her senior season. Her individual game high this year was a 38-point, 17 rebound performance in a win against New Smyrna Beach on Jan. 24.

She also is a nominee for the McDonald's All-American game played at the United Center in Chicago in April. That team will be announced Feb. 14.
