When a basketball player is compared to Michael Jordan, it comes as no surprise when they win a few accolades.

Leading the Piscataway High School girls basketball team to an 18-7 record, senior guard Kendrea Williams averaged 18.8 points per game and knocked down 46 three-pointers and has been named the 2016 Home News Tribune Girls Basketball Player of the Year.

“You listen to stories about Michael Jordan, how he used to compete so hard in practice because he never wanted to lose, that’s very similar with Kendrea,” Piscataway coach David Kosa said. “She realizes that every drill is important, and she was always working 100% as far as getting better and understanding what we need to do to be a successful team.”

The tireless hard work that Williams put in was vital to her success this winter. With the graduation of last year’s seniors, the Chiefs became Williams’ team and with that, opposing teams exclusively focused on stopping the co-captain.

Even after being put in the crosshairs of virtually every opposing defense, Williams still set career highs in points scored (469), assists (50) and rebounds (76).

“My parents taught me that your hard work always pays off, so I always practiced hard, always stayed conditioned because it always comes down to who wants it more,” Williams said. “I tried to make sure I had the team on my back because if they see me down, they’re going to be down, so I tried to lead in every possible way I could.”
