University of Massachusetts junior point guard Chaz Williams will return to Amherst to play his senior season, coach Derek Kellogg announced Monday. Williams led the Minutemen last season in scoring (15.5 per game), assists (7.3), and steals (2.0).
“I love this program and Coach Kellogg, and I love all the guys on the team,” said Williams. “The pieces we have coming back next season was a big reason I decided to stay in school.”
Williams transferred from Hofstra after his freshman season, and after red-shirting for the 2010-11 campaign, he has led UMass in scoring, averaging 16.2 points in 70 games over the past two seasons. He has also 473 assists in his time with the Minutemen, the third-highest total in Division 1 over the last two seasons.
