Although the Washington Huskies will be losing a couple of players, they will also be gaining a couple for the 2013-14 college basketball season. Despite all of the incoming talent, C.J. Wilcox will still be the best player on the team.

Wilcox did lead the team in scoring last season, with 16.8 points per game. He should lead the team in scoring once again.

As much of a no-brainer it may be to say that Wilcox will be the best player on Washington, just hear me out.

Incoming will be Perris Blackwell who put up 12.7 points per game and 6.1 rebounds per game. Not to mention, there is plenty of talent returning to this team, such as Andrew Andrews, who scored 7.8 points per game last season.

However, it is Nigel Williams-Goss who will be getting a lot of hype. He is a five-star recruit and is ranked No. 19 in the class of 2013, according to ESPN.

Sure, Williams-Goss and Andrews may be fighting for the point guard spot, but both players are good enough to take over as the starter and both players should still see the court quite a bit no matter who wins that position battle.

Washington has been getting some big time recruits as of late–Terrence Ross and Tony Wroten Jr.–and Williams-Goss falls under that category. It will be interesting to see if he can have success right away like Ross and Wroten Jr. did, but Wilcox will still be the man for the Huskies.

He is the go-to guy and the returning leader scorer and all. However, that does not mean that he won’t have some friendly competition along the way.
