Senior C.J. Wilcox and freshman Nigel Williams-Goss Monday received Pac-12 Conference honors as voted upon by the league’s coaches. Wilcox, Washington’s leading scorer, made the All-Pac-12 Second Team for the second consecutive year while Williams-Goss was one of five newcomers named to the conference’s All-Freshman Team.

Wilcox, also an honorable mention choice in 2012 and a member of the 2011 All-Freshman team, led the Huskies in scoring, minutes played, 3-pointers made and blocks. He set the UW career record for 3-point FGs and is currently at 299, which ranks sixth in Pac-12 history. He moved into second place all-time at UW in scoring with 1,866 career points.

His 18.5 points per game ranked fourth in the Pac-12 and he led the league in 3-point FGs made with 2.8 per game (88 total). He finished second in FT percentage (86.8) and fourth in minutes played (34.9). Wilcox is also one of just three players in Pac-12 history to post 1,800 points, 275 made 3FGs and 400 career rebounds.

Williams-Goss becomes the 10th freshman under coach Lorenzo Romar to earn All-Freshman honors. The Findlay Prep (NV.) High School graduate led the league’s freshmen in scoring at 13.3 points per game and he was the top frosh in assists (4.4) and assist-to-turnover ratio (1.6).

Williams-Goss set the UW single-season assists record with 137 and led the league with 14 double-digit scoring efforts during conference play.

The Huskies, seeded No. 9, open play in the Pac-12 Tournament Wednesday at 12 p.m. in the MGM Garden Grand in Las Vegas against No. 8 seed Utah.
