Anastasia Williams and Brianna Thomas of St. John the Baptist have both committed to Fairleigh Dickinson University.

Williams, a 6-foot senior center, averaged 9.7 points, 11 rebounds, and 2.2 steals as a junior. She scored double-digits in all five playoff games last season and was a Newsday All-Long Island second team selection.

Thomas, a 5-9 senior guard, averaged 5.5 points, 8.7 rebounds, 2.8 assists, and 2.2 steals last season. She missed several games due to injury and wasn't healthy when she played, dealing with a knee and rib injury.

"She had a great summer," SJB coach Ted Oberg said. "This was the first summer she was 100 percent healthy. I think they both will have great success at FDU."
