Washington Huskies PG Nigel Williams-Goss Picked As Pac-12 Freshman of the Year
Nigel Williams-Goss is one of my favorite point guards entering college basketball next season, and he will be a tremendous floor general for the Washington Huskies. Cannot remember the last time the Huskies welcomed a player so poised and talented.
Saw recently that Drive Basketball recently picked Williams-Goss to be the Pac-12 freshman of the year over power forward Aaron Gordon, which is an interesting argument to consider. It is basically picking brains over brawn.

This is a tough one, because Gordon is a high flyer and so he will get a lot more highlight votes after he ends up on SportsCenter a few weeks in a row. He will be a popular player quite quickly, and the top ten will be quite crowded with Gordon and Andrew Wiggins dunks next season.
Williams-Goss though will likely put up pretty big assist and point numbers as well, so you have to account for that. Could see him averaging around 15 points and around 8 assists per game if he plays heavy minutes, which would probably be enough to win freshman of the year.
Believe it is going to be a pretty close race, that but Williams-Goss’ calming influence will help the Huskies to a run in the late season. Could be wrong about this though, and it is a distinct possibility that Gordon makes us all look a bit stupid.
