Jordan Williams Named to Naismith Preseason Watch List

By Liz Clarke

Maryland sophomore forward Jordan Williams has been named to the 2010-11 Naismith preseason watch list, released Tuesday by the Atlanta Tip-off Club.

Williams, who has had double-doubles in the Terps’ first three games this season, is among eight players from the Atlantic Coast Conference so honored.

Duke led all 44 schools represented on the list in having three players represented: Senior forward Kyle Singler, senior guard Nolan Smith and freshman guard Kyrie Irving.

North Carolina had two: Junior forward Tyler Zeller and freshman forward Harrison Barnes. Florida State’s junior forward Chris Singleton was also recognized, as was Virginia Tech’s senior guard Malcolm Delaney.

In addition, Georgetown’s senior guard Austin Freeman was among the Big East players who made the list.

The Naismith Trophy, considered the most prestigious individual honor in college basketball, will be presented during the NCAA Men’s Final Four in Houston in April.

On Monday, Williams was named the ACC Player of the Week for the first time in his career.

I'm not big on preseason selections of anything, but it is great to see JW off to a strong start. We need to get the team to jell a bit and cut down on the TO's. Better FT shooting would help too. Just about everything needs to keep improving. A win in NYC would really be great.
