Texas Tech adds Darrion Williams, Mountain West Freshman of the Year
Darrion Williams, who won Mountain West Freshman of the Year honors at Nevada this past season, announced Tuesday he is transferring to Texas Tech.
A forward, Williams quickly became an integral part of the Nevada lineup, with 7.6 points, a team-high 7.3 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 1.4 steals per game in 33 games (30 starts). He was second on the team with 47 steals and 36 3-point baskets.
Nevada made the NCAA Tournament’s First Four, where it was eliminated by Arizona State 98-73.
Texas Tech is entering its first season with Grant McCasland as coach after the resignation of Mark Adams, who referenced a Bible verse about “slaves serving their masters” when speaking to a player.
McCasland posted a 135-65 record in six seasons at North Texas and led the Mean Green to the NIT title in 2023.
