Indiana junior forward Troy Williams is known for his high-flying rim assaults and he’s also the Big Ten’s returning leading rebounder. So Williams winning the dunk contest at Saturday night’s Hoosier Hysteria came as little surprise, as Williams effortlessly threw down some slams to impress the home crowd.
But it was the junior’s improved perimeter shooting that had Assembly Hall buzzing. The 6-foot-7 Williams also won the event’s 3-point contest, despite coming into the event with 12 career triples in two seasons. Here’s video of his improved perimeter stroke in winning the contest.
It remains to be seen if Williams winning this 3-point contest is a fluke, but his perimeter shot certainly does look more consistent. Shooting at game speed is dramatically different than taking balls off a rack, but if Williams can space the floor even a little bit more for Indiana it makes a potent offense that much more dangerous.
