Player Bio

Kenrich Lo Williams was born in 1994 in Waco, Texas. He is the son of Cheryl Williams. Kenrich is nicknamed "Kenny Hustle". As a high school senior, Williams led University High School, also in Waco, to a 28-5 record, which included a district championship and an appearance in the 4A Regional I quarterfinals. The forward also earned District 8-4A defensive player of the year honors. He started his collegiate career at New Mexico Junior College but transferred to TCU after his freshman year. While at TCU, Williams majored in sociology. After going undrafted in the 2018 NBA Draft, Williams started his NBA journey as a member of Denver's 2018 Summer League team in Las Vegas. Fans can follow the Texan on Twitter (@williamskenrich). Williams went from being not recruited to a Division I school to earning All-Big-12 Second Team honors over the course of five seasons. He attended New Mexico Junior College as a freshman and averaged 10.1 points and 6.9 rebounds before making his way to TCU. The 6-foot-7 wing started 17 games in his sophomore season for the Horned Frogs and averaged 8.6 points and 6.7 rebounds. He missed the 2015-16 season after suffering a knee injury. In his return to the court as a redshirt junior, Williams led the Big 12 with 19 double-doubles and provided 11.4 points and 9.7 rebounds. TCU won the NIT and Williams contributed the first triple-double in school history with 11 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists in a win over Richmond. Williams was named NIT Most Valuable Player. In his senior season, he contributed 13.2 points, 9.3 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.8 steals as TCU returned to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 20 years. He had 13 double-doubles, including four consecutive early in the season. Williams went undrafted in the 2018 NBA Draft, but he would ultimately sign with the New Orleans Pelicans in July 2018 after a short stint with the Denver Nuggets during that year's Summer League.
