Last August, Parkway’s Mikaylah Williams helped the U.S. women win the gold medal in the FIBA 3 X 3 U18 World Cup in Debrecen, Hungary. In fact, she was named MVP of the event.
Williams is heading back to Debrecen next month as a member of the USA Basketball Women’s U17 National Team. The U.S. will play in the 2022 FIBA U17 World Cup July 9-17.
Mikaylah Williams hasn’t played a high school game yet, but she’s already caught the attention of college coaches in a big way.
A freshman-to-be at Parkway, the South Bossier youth verbally committed to play softball at Louisiana-Lafayette last year. She’s also already received offers to play basketball for schools like LSU, Ole Miss and Arkansas.
The 13-year-old Williams admits the attention can be a bit overwhelming at times, but she’s keeping it in perspective.
“I’m appreciative of the opportunities and that the coaches see something in me,” she said.
