TUCSON, Ariz. – They were going to be stars for the Huskies.

At least that was the plan hashed out when Nigel Williams-Goss, Darin Johnson and Aaron Gordon visited Washington together on a recruiting trip last September.

Williams-Goss, the prototypical floor general, was going to zip passes to Johnson, the sweet-shooting wing, on the perimeter for three-pointers. And Williams-Goss was supposed to flip alley-oop lobs to Gordon, the crazy athletic forward, for highlight jams.

“That’s what you do on those trips,” Williams-Goss said. “You do kind of look into the future and say maybe we can do this or do that.

“But we all know we each have to make the best individual decision for ourselves.”
