Men’s basketball gets ‘greedy’ with seventh class signer
NATCHITOCHES — Northwestern State has dipped back into Missouri’s prep basketball scene to add combo guard Joshua “Greedy” Williams.
Williams spent last season at We Are United Prep in Nixa, Missouri, making all seven of this season’s signers Missouri ties.
New NSU head coach Corey Gipsona Missouri native who has served on the Missouri State staff for the past seven seasons, said the 6-foot-5 Williams has exceptional skills as a facilitator.
“Greedy played for a winning program under Robert Yanders at We Are United Prep, and you know what’s going on when you get one of the players,” Gipson said. “He’s a great point guard with a great understanding of the game, and he has a high basketball IQ.
“He’s a prolific passer and facilitator who can defend multiple positions. His dad Brian is one of the best shooters ever at the University of Alabama, so he grew up around basketball and can to be an extension of the coaching staff.”
Williams established his basketball foundation at Pinson Valley, Alabama, averaging 15 points and over four rebounds and four assists per game for Pinson Valley High in 2020-21.
He led the Indians to a 20-5 record and the regional round of the Class 6A playoffs.
