The University of Michigan-Dearborn men’s basketball team won two mid-January games behind Marcus Williams, who averaged 15 points and 5.5 rebounds in the wins. Williams was nominated for Player of the Week following his performance, and won with 58 percent of the vote.

Sports editor Jeramy Stover caught up with Williams before UM-Dearborn’s trip to Davenport and asked him a variety of questions including being dunked on by Cornerstone’s Kyle Steigenga on Saturday.
