Gamecock Basketball: A Tribute to Brenton Williams

Brenton Williams was a PG for the South Carolina Gamecocks from 2011-2014. This is a tribute to the Gamecock's only senior in 2014.

Freshman Year

His freshman year, Williams was starting PG for the Santa Fe Saints, a college located in Gainesville, Florida. He averaged 11.8 points, 1.9 assists, shooting 47% from the field, including 39% from 3-pt. range. He was second-team All-Conference Mid-Florida, leading the Saints to their first and only Mid-Florida Conference Championship.

Sophomore Year

He saw action in 23 games his first year as a Gamecock under Darrin Horn. He averaged 6.1 points, 0.8 rebounds, shooting an incredible 40% from 3-point land. In SEC tournament play, he scored 13 points on 3-3 shooting from beyond the arc in a First-Round loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide. He was nominated to the SEC First-Year Academic Honor Roll.

Junior Year

In Frank Martin's first year coaching the Gamecocks, Brenton Williams saw action in 31 games, including 7 starts. He averaged 11 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 1.4 assists in 17.9 minutes per game. He scored a career high against Mississippi St on March 6th with 38 points. This career high would remain unbroken. He scored 38 points again against the Georgia Bulldogs a few days later. He scored only six points in an SEC tournament loss to the Mississippi St. Bulldogs. He was named to the SEC Winter Academic Roll.

Senior Year

Leading a team composed of seven freshmen, this was Brenton Williams year to shine. Many doubted he would even start, believing Villanova transfer Tyrone Johnson would get the start at point guard. Brenton silenced doubter, leading the team in points (14.9), steals (1.1), and leading the NCAA in Free Throw Percentage (93%). His shooting was incredible at 42%, including a 43% from beyond the arc. He scored a season-high 32 points against the Missouri Tigers on January 25th, and led an SEC tournament run, averaging 13 points and two assists in the two big wins against Auburn and Arkansas.

I want to congratulate Brenton for a fantastic 3 years at South Carolina, and wish him luck in the future.
