How Williams-Goss improves
By Matt Giles
Since the 2013 season marks Abdul Gaddy's final year of eligibility, Lorenzo Romar and the Washington coaching staff needed to drastically improve the depth of the Huskies' backcourt. Andrew Andrews has shown promise in his limited minutes, lowering his turnover percentage in Pac-12 play, but it would not be surprising if Hikeem Stewart spent his remaining two years of eligibility at another program. If CJ Wilcox departs from UW after this season, Romar is left with a backcourt in shambles, so it makes sense that the Huskies' 2013 recruiting class is filled with guards.
One of those guards, Nigel Williams-Goss, is regarded as one of the top point guards in the nation, and he spoke with ESPN's Phil Murphy following the recent Hoophall Classic. When asked what area of his game he needed to improve before making the trek to Seattle, Williams-Goss was introspective with his own scouting report: "Definitely finishing with my left hand, and getting more consistent with my jump shot in the mid-range area ... right now, you can get to the hole a lot in high school, but that mid-range is key in college."
