The Wake Forest Demon Deacons did not get the best transfer in college hoops, but Coron Williams‘ three-point shooting ability will still be a huge bonus to the team in the 2013-14 college basketball season.
Williams has made 48 or more three-point shots the last three season. That was his low total in a season. His most was 87 and last season he made 74 shots from behind the arc.
He doesn’t just knock down threes, though, he does it at an efficient rate, shooting 41.6 percent from long range this past season. This is huge for Wake Forest considering that leading scorer C.J. Harris will no longer be on the team. Harris averaged 15.4 points per game last season and he also led the team in three-pointers with 59 on the year.
So, Williams should instantly be the best three-point shooter on the team. That type of player is always valuable to have on any college hoops team.
Williams averaged 9.1 points per game in the 2012-13 season and he played 24.7 minutes per game on average. Who knows, with more playing time he could be one of the best three-points shooters in the ACC. If that is the case, he would likely be one of the best shooters in the nation from behind the arc since the ACC could very well be the best conference.
Wake Forest has some work to do before it can compete in the ACC once again, but at least it will be getting a transfer that can have an impact right away.
