Morning links: Nigel Williams-Goss should stay at UW

Times columnist Jerry Brewer believes freshman guard Nigel Williams-Goss should forget about entering the NBA draft and return to Washington next season.

He writes: “Nigel Williams-Goss is too smart to become the star of a one-and-done cautionary tale. Assuming an NBA team doesn’t guarantee him a first-round selection, he will suspend his NBA flirtation, return to Washington for his sophomore season and keep coach Lorenzo Romar from having a panic attack.”
