Victoria Willems can now concentrate on having her most productive year of basketball. Her big day came in a signing ceremony at MacArthur High School yesterday. Willems signed with William and Mary on the first day of the signing period.
Willems will have the opportunity to match up against one of the best players in the nation for the three years. The University of Delaware is in the same conference as William and Mary and features the consensus #1 ranked player in the nation for the year of 2008, Elena DelleDonne. EDD originally committed to UConn but chose to return home and attend Delaware. She reportedly had 50 points in a scrimmage last week while shooting 20 for 25. Willems plays the same position and has a great opportunity in the match up.
Willems is a 6'2 forward that can hit the 17 footer with consistency. MacArthur has a new 5-Out offense that encourages her to shoot the 3-ball and use her polished face up game to score. MacArthur is expected to be a major contender for their district championship. They return the majority of their play-off team from last year.
Congrats to the Willems Family, MacArthur HS Staff, and the SA Comets Elite!
