Our own JIM WILLIAMS entertained the club last week, by sharing his experiences playing basketball all around the world. His short answer to the question "What does it take? " is hard work and dedication. He encourages others to set goals and then dedicate yourself to achieving them through hard work . He acknowledges that it is by God's hand in giving him height and athletic ability that he has been able to put his dedication to good use. Jim was an All State , All American , and state Best of Pa player while at Norristown High School.  He continued his career at Temple where he still holds the record for highest average in rebounds per game. His highlights include playing in the 1967 Pan Am Games , and , after weighing offers from the NBA and ABA, decided to play in Italy, where he led his Naples team to the European championship. Jim has been selected for the Temple, Big 5, and Norristown Halls of Fame, and was recently honoured with being added to the Temple Ring of Honor. He related that  playing as a youngster, they all played just for the love of the game, not with future fame in mind, but Jim was able to take the God given talents he has, and turned that love into a successful career. Congratulations,Jim, on a game well played.
WILLIAMS demonstrated that he still has the ability to play well above the rim.
