CINCINNATI -- University of Cincinnati forward Mike Williams is out for the season after rupturing his Achilles tendon in preseason basketball workouts this week.

The 6-foot-7, 230-pound player sat out last season after transferring from the University of Texas. At Texas, Williams played in 58 games over two years, averaging 2.7 points and 3.4 rebounds.

Williams would still have two years of eligibility after sitting out this season as a medical redshirt.
