TBW Director Inducted into Athletic Hall of Fame

TBW Director Allen Williams was inducted into the University of North Alabama Athletic Hall of Fame on September 24, 2011.  Williams was a two-year starting guard on University of North Alabama teams in 1990 and 1991.  He helped lead the UNA Lions to an NCAA Division II National Championship title in 1991.  The team finished that year with a 29-4 record.  He led the team in scoring (517) and assists (177), was selected to the All-Gulf South Conference team and to the NCAA Championship All-Tournament team in 1990-91.  As a senior he averaged 16.2 points per game and is one of just 13 players in UNA history to score more than 500 points in a season.

A native of Clearwater, Florida, Allen Williams played locally for Clearwater High School in the late 80’s. He also played professionally over a four-year span in Germany, the Dominican Republic, and the United States.  After his travel career, he returned to his home town, started a family, and found a way to give back to the community.  Earlier this year, Allen Williams, along with co-Director Daryl Blume, established The Basketball Warehouse (TBW).
