Transcript of live chat with C.J. Wilcox, Scott Suggs
C.J. Wilcox and Scott Suggs hosted a live chat to answer questions and talk about the Huskies.
Washington is riding a season-high four game winning streak and has won 10 of the past 12 games to improve to 12-5. The Huskies are tied for first in the Pac-12 with UCLA at 4-0.
Wilcox is tied for second in the conference in the scoring race averaging 19.4 points. After coming off the bench last season, the junior guard stepped into a starting role and has made himself into a Pac-12 MVP candidate. He’s first in the league in three-pointers (45) and attempts (109) behind the arc. He’s seventh in three-point accuracy (41.3 percent), third in minutes (35.2) and tied for ninth with 23 blocked shots.
Wilcox is obviously a big part of UW’s offense and he hasn’t been shy about shooting the ball. He accounts for 27.1 percent of the team’s field-goal attempts (253-934). He’s scored at least 20 points in 10 games, including 25 to lead Washington to a 64-54 win over Colorado in Wednesday’s Pac-12 home opener.
Suggs, a fifth-year senior, sat out last season with a foot injury. He’s averaging 12.2 points, which is 22nd in the Pac-12.
