Another accolade for Nigel Williams-Goss

You can make a strong case for Nigel Williams-Goss being the best point guard among the 2013 incoming freshmen.

The 6-3, 185-pound standout, who signed with Washington, starred in the McDonald’s All-American game last week (video highlights above) and will play in the Jordan Brand Classic on Friday.

This week Max Preps selected him a first-team All-American. Williams-Goss is one of two Pac-12 players on the squad joining Aaron Gordon, who is attending Arizona.

There’s not another incoming player in the conference included among the top 25 players on Max Preps’ five All-American teams.

Pac-12 players on the honorable mention list include: Jabari Bird (California), Rondae Jefferson (Arizona), Zach Lavine (UCLA) and Roschon Prince (USC).

AROUND THE PAC-12:

Tanner Lancona, a 6-8 forward who signed with Washington State last November, tweeted today that he’s not going to play for the Cougars and will pursue other options.

— New USC coach Andy Enfield made a big splash with his second hire. He added Tony Bland, an assistant at San Diego State. It’s a win-win for USC and Bland. The Trojans get a well respected recruiter with ties to Southern California. Bland reportedly gets a big raise in salary from $120,000 to $300,000 annually. Enfield first hire was Jason Hart, a LA native who spent last season at Pepperdine.

Rob Dauster at NBCsports.com writes: “All of a sudden, USC looks like the program on the rise out west.”

— Arizona’s Kevin Parrom decided not to pursue a fifth-year waiver and his Wildcats career is officially over.

— California unveiled it’s new Golden Bear logo and uniforms.

— Fun story about USC athletic director Pat Haden who has a small role in a campus play.

— And here’s a link to catch action at the Portsmouth Invitational. Former UW player Aziz N’Diaye and former WSU star Brock Motum team up at 5 p.m. PST in a consolation game.
