Nevaeh Williams ♦ Mount Clemens
Basketball ♦ Senior
A media report her sophomore season referred to Williams as the “best player that most high school hoops fans have never heard of,” but the part about being unknown has changed significantly this season and especially over the last week. On Jan. 7, Williams scored 60 points in a win over Arts & Technology Academy of Pontiac – tying the fourth-highest single-game total in state girls basketball history – and she followed up with 42 points in a 58-38 win Tuesday against Warren Michigan Collegiate.
The senior point guard has arguably been unmatched in filling stat sheets this winter. She also had seven rebounds against ATAP, and added eight rebounds and 10 steals against Michigan Collegiate. She went over 1,000 career points during a Dec. 14 win over Detroit Pershing, tallying a quadruple double with 20 points, 13 rebounds, 10 assists and 11 steals, and nearly matched it the next night in a win over Detroit Lincoln-King Academy with 35 points, 10 steals, nine rebounds and seven assists. Earlier in December she put up 44 points in a victory over Southfield Bradford, and she set a school record with 14 steals against Melvindale Academy of Business & Technology also during the season’s first weeks.
