The Huskies fell to Utah 67-61, Wednesday, potentially ending the team’s 2013-14 campaign on a rather bitter note.
Nigel Williams-Goss joined Steve, Bill and Jason on The Steve Sandmeyer Show just prior to the Pac-12 Tournament opener.

Playing in his final game at the Alaska Airlines Arena, Washington senior C.J. Wilcox scored 24 points, grabbed eight rebounds and had three steals to lead the Huskies.
Washington (16-14, 8-9) had won two in a row and looked sharp early on as the team shot nearly 59 percent from the field in the first half to take a 45-41 lead, but UCLA out-scored the Huskies 50-37 in the final 20 minutes to secure the win.
Nigel Williams-Goss scored 17 points and Andrew Andrews added 16 points to carry the Huskies to just their third win in the past eight games.
With 23 points, Wilcox passed Jon Brockman (1,805 points) for second on Washington’s all-time scoring list as Washington snapped a 7-game road losing streak with the blowout victory.
Wilcox finished with 17 points and Nigel Williams-Goss added 16 points and five assists. Perhaps the biggest contribution for the Huskies, though, came from guard Mike Anderson who finished with 13 points including two key back-to-back 3-pointers which capped a 12-2 run over the first three minutes of the second half to give Washington a 39-36 lead.
The Huskies were led by freshman point guard Nigel Williams-Goss who scored 15 points and delivered four assists. Leading-scorer and All-Pac-12 guard C.J. Wilcox was held to just eight points on 2-for-10 shooting from the field including 0-for-7 from beyond the arc.
Williams-Goss scored 24 of his 32 points in the second half, finishing 10-for-15 from the field, including 3-for-4 from beyond the arc.
