It's been a great week for the Williams Family from Torrington.

First, former Raider star Jordan Williams is called back up to the New Jersey Nets after a stint with the Springfield Armor in the Developmental League.

Second, current Raiders standout Caycee Williams has a monster double-double game against rival Holy Cross (23 points, 20 rebounds) in a 67-62 loss.

Rounding off the basketball trifecta is Desmond Williams, who gets some honors of his own at the next level.

In the Knight’s 76-53 victory over Suffolk CCC (N.Y.), Williams totaled 21 points, five rebounds and six assists. Williams and the Knights have the week off and will pick things back up Tuesday at Gateway CC (Conn.).
