ELLENSBURG, WA (Apr. 25) -- Central Washington University men's basketball coach Greg Sparling announced that point guard Dominique Williams has chosen to finish is collegiate basketball career as a Wildcat, signing a letter of intent Wednesday afternoon.

"We are excited about the addition of Dom (Williams) to our roster." Sparling said. "He has an outstanding feel for the game offensively with the ability to shoot the ball with range and has the potential to put pressure on the ball defensively."

William's is a 5-foot-10 guard and is transferring to CWU as a junior and can play both the point and shooting guard positions. He hails from Tacoma, Wash. and prepped at Curtis High school, but transfers to Central Washington from Tacoma Community College where he played two years under the tutelage of former Wildcat assistant coach and current TCC head coach Carl Howell.

"Dominique is a winner." Howell said, "He played his best games in our most important games, especially the championship."

Williams scored 36 points, with five rebounds and five assists in the Titians 110-98 victory in thr Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges 2012 championship game over Chemeketa Community College, earning NWAACC tournament MVP honors. He helped TCC to a 26-5 record in his sophomore campaign and totaled a 52-7 mark as the team's starting point guard over his two seasons.

"52-7 in two years as our point guard is a tremendous feat for Dom (Dominique Williams)." Howell said. "It was a reflection of his competitiveness and character as a leader on our team."

Williams averaged 12.7 points per game over two seasons with the Titans, and scored over 20 points on ten different occasions, and over 30 points twice.

Howell also states that Williams was drawn to Central Washington by CWU associate head coach G.E. Coleman, who showed interest in the point guard very early in his two years at TCC.

The Tacoma native joins a Wildcat team with familiar faces as he played with current Wildcats Jordan Coby, Brandon Magee and Chris Holmes, all of which played at Tacoma Community College two years ago.
