Berkeley College is proud to announce that senior guard Kaseem Williams of Brooklyn, NY, has been named Player of the Week by both the Hudson Valley Men’s Athletic Conference (HVMAC) and the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) for men’s basketball. Mr. Williams is a student at the New York City location.
