GLENVILLE, W.Va. – Glenville State College received a pair of All-American basketball honors on Tuesday.

Zakiyah Winfield was named a first team All-American by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association Tuesday morning.

Tuesday afternoon, John Williams was announced as a third team All-American, according to the Division-II Conference Commissioners Association of Men’s Basketball.

Williams led the country in scoring (27.8 ppg) at the D2 level. He was an all-MEC first team selection, and made the all-MEC tournament team this season as well.

He’s one of just two MEC men’s basketball players to receive this honor this year, along with West Liberty’s Dalton Bolon.

Williams is currently in the transfer portal after an outstanding season with the Pioneers that earned him national attention.

Williams scored 52 points against Frostburg State this season — the second-most in MEC history for a single game.
