Poll question: Who goes to the bench … possibly C.J. Wilcox?

With the return of junior center Aziz N’Diaye, Washington has six starters. But only five are allowed on the floor when the Huskies tip off against Oregon State in the Pac-12 opener.
It’s really not a bad problem for Lorenzo Romar. Other coaches would love to have the wealth of talent on the UW roster.
However, it’s potentially awkward. And a team that’s had chemistry issues doesn’t need another distraction before the start of conference play.
Someone has to go to the bench. The candidates include:
Abdul Gaddy — Started 11 games. The quarterback of the offense leads Pac-12 with a 3.2 assist/turnover ratio. Has five or more assists in eight games. He’s also fifth in the conference and first among the Huskies in minutes (32.4).
Darnell Gant — Started 11 games. The 6-8 senior is averaging 8.7 rebounds in the past three games. Leads UW with 56.1 FG percentage.
Aziz N’Diaye — Started eight games. The 7-foot defensive enforcer leads Pac-12 in blocks (2.0), second in rebounds (8.6).
Terrence Ross — Started 11 games. Arguably the most talented player on the team who is able to defend four positions. Ranks in top 10 in Pac-12 in scoring (15.1) and rebounding (6.5).
C.J. Wilcox (above) — Started 11 games. One of the best shooters in Pac-12. Ranks second in conference averaging 2.6 three-pointers per game. Pac-12 POW. Missed a practice this week due to a root canal.
Tony Wroten Jr. — Started three games. The gifted freshman ranks third in Pac-12 with 16.0 scoring average and fourth in steals (1.7). Averaging 21.3 points in the past four games.
