Things are looking up for the Husky Men’s Basketball Team.
Just a couple days after officially landing Darin Johnson on the first day of the early signing period, the Dawgs locked up Nigel Williams-Goss as well. According to a blog post from Percy Allen, Williams-Goss is ranked anywhere from #39 to #47 by the national recruiting services. His coach at Findlay Prep in Nevada called him a “consumate” point guard at a time when the UW will need backcourt personnel.

After Tony Wroten and Terrence Ross both left for the NBA after last season, the Dawgs will lose Abdul Gaddy and Scott Suggs to graduation at the end of this season. With CJ Wilcox, currently a junior, the only lock for the starting lineup next season (if he stays in school), Johnson and Williams-Goss can be betted on to compete for minutes right away. Or, you can look for more sports betting sites reviews.
UW Dawg Pound has a pretty good overview of WG’s game, here. You can check out Williams-Goss’ apparent Twitter account here (he is currently accepting kudos on his signing.)
The 2013-14 season is still a long way away, but in Williams-Goss (a PG) and Johnson (SG) could be a multi-year tandem in Lorenzo Romar’s backcourt. It was reported that Romar’s success in grooming guards for the NBA played a role in the Johnson’s decision, and presumably Williams-Goss as well.
We’re excited to see who else the Huskies land for the class of 2013, which is shaping up to be a good one.

Ask 10, 50 100, or maybe even a thousand people and chances are slim that any of them would know a single thing about the Great Danes of Albany, let alone where the University of Albany is.
On Tuesday evening, the Great Danes opened eyes of NCAA fans and Huskies faithful with a 63-62 upset of the Washington Huskies, a PAC-12 team, at Alaska Airlines Arena.
Washington fans got to see just about every side of the Husky's tonight. UW, despite playing only seven guys, finished with a gutsy 84-73 win in overtime against a streaky Big East foe. The Huskies raced out to a big lead with a 17-0 run in the first eight minutes, aided by 8 points and 2 assists by a very confident Abdul Gaddy during Washington outburst...
Turning the corner?
University of Washington Huskies fans have been waiting all year long for a game like this from QB Keith Price.
It was presumed that after last year, Price would be one of the top QB’s in the nation in 2012, but that just hasn’t been the case.
Some speculate that we haven’t seen last years form because of all of the roster moves and shakeups that have been...
Keith Price threw a career-best five touchdown passes and Washington overcame a slow start to whip hapless Colorado 38-3 on Saturday for the Huskies' fourth straight win.
Bishop Sankey atoned for a first-half fumble at the 1 by running through Colorado's defense for 139 yards and collecting 48 more on four receptions as the Huskies (7-4, 5-3 Pac-10) won consecutive road...
According to everyone weighing in on the Washington Huskies and Colorado Buffaloes game this Saturday, the Huskies should have this game in the palm of their hands. With the college betting odds putting the Buffaloes at a +21 point spread, however, covering the game may be harder than they think. Colorado has not played well at all this year, but it remains to be seen if they...
