Former North student Alan Williams was featured in the December 1 edition of Sports Illustrated. Williams, now a senior at University of California-Santa Barbara, is arguably the most productive big man in college basketball. At 6-8, 265-pounds, he is not unlike Charles Barkley’s “Round Mound of Rebound” nickname, averaging over 14 rebounds and 25 points per game. He has acquired almost as many nicknames as Barkley, from “Big Al,” to “Big Sauce” to “Beast Warrior.” The magazine’s headline was “Beast of the Beach.” He has lready outplayed a projected top draft pick from Kansas, and he is on the NBA’s radar as a first-rounder himself.
