I'm lovin' it. This basketball season is not going the way Husky fans want it to go, but there is some good news every now and then. Incoming Husky Nigel Williams-Goss was named to the McDonald's All-American game earlier today.
This is the fourth future Husky in recent memory to participate in this game, current Husky Abdul Gaddy played in 2009, Spencer Hawes in 2006 and Jon Brockman in 2005.
Williams-Goss will be playing with some great players on the West team, including Duke-bound Jabari Parker and future Kentucky Wildcat Andrew Harrison. Also on the West squad is Aaron Gordon, one of the two undeclared players on both the West and East teams' rosters. Along with Washington, Oregon, Arizona and Kentucky make up Gordon's final four schools.
Williams-Goss is looking like more and more of a steal for coach Lorenzo Romar and his staff. Along with averaging 18 points, 7.5 assists and 5.5 rebounds per game, he's also the consummate leader for the No. 1 team in team in the country, Findlay Prep. Williams-Goss and company are 27-0 this season.
Nobody works harder than Nigel," Findlay Prep coach Todd Simon said. "He has earned everything he has received. He has done it the old-fashioned way of rolling up his sleeves. (Via: Las Vegas Sun)
Williams-Goss will also be participating in the Jordan Brand Classic game on April 13th.
The McDonald's All-American game takes place on April 3rd at 6:30 p.m.
