Gonzaga guard Nigel Williams-Goss will take on his former team for the first time since transferring. Williams-Goss said he had nothing but good will towards teammates and the coaching staff but was uncomfortable with the changes surrounding the program and schools performance on the court. The junior has been an excellent addition to Gonzaga, as Williams-Goss is averaging 12.5 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.6 assists this season.
Washington isn’t losing much sleep after Williams-Goss departure, as the team brought in Markelle Futlz to start at the point. Fultz, who was the top-rated high school player in the country, is averaging 22.7 points, 6.7 rebounds and 6.6 assists while shooting 54 percent from the floor. Though Fultz is the main contributor, four other Huskies are averaging double-digit points.
