Born and raised in the Bronx, N.Y., Corey “Homicide” Williams began his college career at Penn Valley Community College in Missouri where he led the team to a Junior College National Championship. He completed his college career at Alabama State University where he averaged nearly 13 points a game for the Division I school.
After his college exit, Williams started making a name for himself on the streetball courts of New York City, dominating pickup games and tournaments at Dyckman Park in Manhattan and Rucker Park in Harlem. With his ability to score and make plays from everywhere on the court, Williams quickly became one of streetball’s most well-known and respected players. In a well-documented game in 2006, Williams scored 25 points against a team led by one of the NBA’s top players at that time. With numerous legendary performances over the years and his ability to “kill” everyone who stepped on the court, Williams earned the nickname “Homicide” – streetball’s most dangerous player.
Williams’ play on the courts of New York has turned the heads of several pro scouts. Williams’ has played in eight overseas leagues including Brazil, France, Venezuela and Germany. He also attended NBA training camps in Toronto, Denver and Indiana. In 2008, Williams signed with the Townsville Crocodiles in Australia’s National Basketball League (NBL) and quickly established himself as one of the league’s top guards, being selected to the All NBL Second team in his debut season. In 2009 and 2010, Williams was selected to the All NBL First team and was voted the league’s 2010 Most Valuable Player. This past season, Williams played overseas in Puerto Rico and Lebanon.
