The Washington Huskies will look to make the NCAA tournament in the 2013-14 college basketball season. One player that could help them out in the upcoming season is sophomore Andrew Andrews and he could thrive with more playing time.

In his first season in college, Andrews played 24.7 minutes per game, while averaging 7.8 points per game, three rebounds per game and 2.3 assists per game.

With that said, Nigel Williams-Goss is a very highly rated recruit. ESPN has him ranked at No. 19 for the class of 2013.

Who knows how Washington will settle the point guard spot, but both players could see equal playing time or one could earn the job full-time over the other. Both could be put on the court at the same time, which would arguably be the best option to go with. Whether the case, the Huskies need to find a way for both player to receive quite a bit of playing time.

Having two talented point guards is never a bad thing, it will just add to Washington’s depth at that position, which is especially helpful if an injury was to occur.

Washington has not made the NCAA tournament for a couple of season, but it still finished with a 9-9 record in the Pac-12 last season. The 18-16 record overall ensured that the team would not dance last season, though.

The Huskies will have their fair share of talent in the 2013-14 season, but will it be enough to compete against teams like Arizona in the conference? Time will tell on that one, but Andrews could thrive with more playing time regardless.
