NEW YORK -- Kamiko Williams is finding her niche in the WNBA with the New York Liberty. In only the second game of the regular season, she earned her first start as a professional player.
The product of Clarksville, Tenn. (Northeast H.S.) is averaging four points, two rebounds and 2.5 assists in two contests for New York thus far. She got her first starting nod from head coach Bill Laimbeer in a 78-76 home win over the Tulsa Shock on May 31.
Williams played 19 minutes vs. former UT teammate Glory Johnson and the Shock, scoring two points and contributing three rebounds, an assist, block and steal in front of the home fans.
In the linked video interview, the Tennessee graduate and 2013 second-round draft pick of the Liberty visits with Denise Saul of Women's Sports & Entertainment Network (WSEN) and reflects on the transition she's been dealing with as a rookie in the league.
