Kavell Bigby-Williams is having fun out in the States having posted two triple-doubles in his first four games of the JUCO season in Division 1.
The 6’9″ forward is in his second year at Gillette College and currently averages 16.8 points and 13.8 rebounds per game as well as having the most blocks (31) in the NJCAA so far.
“I’m feeling good right now,” he told Hoopsfix. “I’m in good rhythm and playing well – I’m just trying to lead the team and be as aggressive as I can to help us win.”
Bigby-Williams hit the ground running with 21 points (9-14 FG), 12 rebounds and an impressive 10 blocks for a stellar stat-line in a 76-55 win against Dawson Community College. That was followed by 21 points and 20 rebounds in a performance that also included five blocks and five steals.
This past weekend, Bigby-Williams showed no signs of letting up after going for 12 points, 10 rebounds and 11 blocks for another triple-double in a 96-69 win over Laramie County, who have freshman Ola Ayodele on their roster.
