Nigel Williams-Goss is becoming a fast favorite of Billy Donovan’s in Prague at the Fiba Men’s Uner-19 World Championships. Williams-Goss was at the NHSI tournament in April and it appears he has even improved defensively since we saw him last.

“A big emphasis for our team since day one is guarding the 3-point line,” said Williams-Goss to SportsPressNW.com. “A couple of times early, they got free for a couple of open looks, but during the first timeout coach (Billy Donovan) really stressed the point to us again and kind of got after us a little bit. After that, we did a better job a taking it away.”
Another efficient night for Nigel Williams-Goss: 9 points (3 for 3), 4 boards, 4 assists as the USA U-19 team blows out China, 113-57.

Williams-Goss is a winner and his college career will be fascinating to watch unfold; his high school career was exemplary and I expect the same from his college career.
