Gonzaga Star Nigel Williams-Goss Announces NBA Draft Decision

Nigel Williams-Goss will not be back at Gonzaga next year.

The Gonzaga Bulldogs lost just one game in the regular season before entering the NCAA Tournament. Just a few games later, and the Bulldogs were matched up against the North Carolina Tar Heels for a national title.

Gonzaga made its first Final Four in school history, but lost in the title game to Roy Williams' Tar Heels. Despite the loss, it was a wildly successful season for the Bulldogs -- in large part due to the play of Nigel Williams-Goss.

After the incredible 2016-2017 season, Williams-Goss announced his plans t0 enter the NBA Draft.

The star guard transferred to Gonzaga after two years are Washington. After sitting out a year, Williams-Goss starred for the Bulldogs in 2016-2017 en route to West Coast Conference Player of the Year honors.

Williams-Goss averaged 16.8 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 4.7 assists in just under 33 minutes player per game. He also had career highs in field goal percentage, three point shooting percentage, and free throw percentage. He was more efficient during his final year with the Bulldogs than he was in two years at Washington.

His stock won't get much higher than this past season where he lifted his team to the national title game.
