SKOPJE, NORTH MACEDONIA– Two years after Josh Williams graduated from Robert Morris, the former Colonials guard inked the first pro deal of his young career, signing with KK Feniks 2010 of the Macedonian Superleague.

Williams spent his first two seasons with his collegiate career with Akron, averaging seven points per game with the Zips. After losing the MAC Championship in 2017, he transferred to Robert Morris to play alongside his brother Jon Williams.

He started his time with the Colonials with a bang, tying the NCAA record for the most three-pointers in a D-I basketball game. From there on out, Williams’ presence was known on the backcourt as he averaged a career-high 14 points per game.

In the 2019-20 season, Williams was another dominant force for the Colonials, averaging 13 points per game and avenging his conference tournament loss in the MAC by winning the NEC championship over Saint Francis in 2020, punching Robert Morris’ ticket to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2015.

As for KK Feniks 2010, they will welcome Williams on the roster as they have played to a 7-6 record this season in the MSL.
