Mystics Season Rewind: Elizabeth Williams

New to the Mystics, this player dominated the paint when she was on the floor. We are going to dive into her season in this Mystics Season Rewind – Elizabeth Williams 

Elizabeth Williams 2022 Season Rewind

During the season, Elizabeth came off the bench and played an important role for us. She averaged 14.9 mins on the floor per game and when she was in the game made her presence felt. Between tying the franchise record of blocks in a game to grabbing 5+ rebounds in nine games this season, Williams was a force on the court. 

 She averaged 5.4 points and 3.8 rebounds per game for the season and recorded five double digit point games. Williams recorded a block in 13 games, tied for the second-most on the team and on May 31th, she dished out 6 blocks, tying the franchise record for blocks in a single-game.

Additionally, during that game, Williams became only the second player in WNBA history, joining Sylvia Fowles, to record 15+ rebounds and 5+ blocks in a single game from off the bench when she grabbed a season-high 15 rebounds and blocked 6 shots from off the bench. 

 

Williams Off The Court Moments 

During her time away from the court, Williams helped put up a mural in DC to highlight and spread awareness to wrongfully detained US Nationals, including the WNBA’s own, Brittany Griner. 

One thing she made sure to do outside of basketball was to make a statement with her arrival outfits including supporting former Mystics players and making sure people do not forget Brittany Griner.

On May 31st, against the Indiana Fever, Williams had her first double-double of the season with 10 points and season-high 15 rebounds, along with six blocks that tied a franchise-record.
