Kaylon Williams missed all of last season with a torn Achilles tendon, but the sophomore forward from Midwest City has re-established herself as an important piece of the Oklahoma women's basketball team this year.
She's averaging 10.1 points and 5.7 rebounds per game so far, but has also struggled with fouls because of her aggressive playing style and the new, stricter NCAA rules.
Williams spoke with The Oklahoman in advance of the Sooners' game Wednesday evening against Fairfield in Bridgeport, Conn.
Q: Are fouls something you're really focused on reducing?
A: I know coach (Sherri) Coale has made it a big emphasis for me to stay on the floor longer, and in order to do that, I need to be smart with my fouls. I know with the new officiating, it's hard because you have to adjust to certain things as far as defense. I'm learning how to still be aggressive in the process. I love the aggression part of the game; that's my favorite part. But I need to be smart about when to foul.
Were you a little skittish when you first came back from your injury?
