Classroom

Terrence was honored on the U of L Athletic Director’s Honor Roll and is on target to earn his degree in Communications at U of L in the Fall of 2009.

Character

Team co-captain and leader for the Cardinals, Williams had knee surgery in the preseason and was back on the court in three weeks, all the while encouraging and helping to teach the seven newcomers on the team.

Community

Terrence has read to elementary school classes, spoken at grade schools prior to testing sessions to help motivate students to do well, and is an engaging personality and creative go-to guy in the locker room for reporters.

Competition

An unselfish player,  Terrence has led the Cardinals in assists the last two years and makes others on the court better.  He fills up the box score with positive stats, ranking among the team leaders in scoring, rebounding and steals.  There are only four triple-doubles in U of L history; Williams has two of them.  He was also recently selected as one of the top 30 midseason candidates for the 2009 Wooden Award.
