Ruptured Achilles tendon puts Bearcats' Williams out for season

CINCINNATI -- University of Cincinnati forward Mike Williams
is out for the season after rupturing his Achilles tendon in
preseason basketball workouts this week.

The 6-foot-7, 230-pound player sat out last season after
transferring from the University of Texas. At Texas, Williams
played in 58 games over two years, averaging 2.7 points and
3.4 rebounds.

Williams would still have two years of eligibility after sitting
out this season as a medical redshirt.
