Jay Williams Cover Athlete For NCAA College Basketball 2K3
Jay Williams has been officially named the new spokesperson and cover athlete for Sega Sports NCAA College Basketball 2K3. A member of the Duke Blue Devils, Williams enters the NBA Draft as a top prospect coming off an explosive year in college. Along with being named National Player of the Year, Williams led his team to the 2001 National Championship game. Sega feels his character and likeness are well comparable with the style of videogames they develop.
"Jay Williams is one of the most talented players in this year's NBA draft. He is poised to continue the lineage of brilliance and revolutionary play set forth by legendary point guards such as Allen Iverson, John Stockton and Isiah Thomas," said Tom Nichols, vice president of sports marketing, SEGA of America, Inc. "A true student-athlete, Williams epitomizes what SEGA Sports stands for -- passion, creativity and a relentless commitment to excellence. His expertise and knowledge of the college game will help make 'SEGA Sports NCAA College Basketball 2K3' the most true-to-life college basketball simulation available."
"It's a real honor to be selected as the cover athlete for 'SEGA Sports NCAA College Basketball 2K3,'" Williams said. "The game truly captures the excitement and atmosphere of college hoops, from the wide-open motion offenses to the rabid fans of Cameron Indoor. I look forward to challenging my new NBA teammates in SEGA Sports' first college basketball game."
NCAA College Basketball 2K3 is produced by Visual Concepts and developed by Kush Games. The game delivers incredible college style gameplay, school-specific arenas, team chants, cheerleaders, fight songs, and crowd interaction. Expanding upon last year's title, Sega has truly gone lengths in enhancing the replay value of NCAA College Basketball 2K3 with the ability to freely edit rosters, names, and individual player ratings. The game will also be online compatible when it is released.
Expect to see NCAA College Basketball 2K3 on store shelves sometime this winter for the PS2.
