Nigel Williams-Goss hopes to benefit in the upcoming weeks from some home cooking.
That has nothing to do with Washington starting the season with three games at Hec Edmundson Pavilion, by the way. Rather, Williams-Goss’ mother, father and grandmother were in town for Wednesday’s exhibition game.
“It was just a dream come true, a moment that we’ve always dreamed about and talked about for a long time,” Williams-Goss, an Oregon native who moved to Las Vegas for high school, said Friday afternoon. “It was a really good feeling having all three of them here for that first game.”
With his mom and dad still around, he plans to benefit from his mother’s culinary skills.
“My mom, she’s actually planning right now to come cook over in our dorm,” Williams-Goss said. “I’ll spread the love a little bit.”
He hopes to do the same as the Huskies begin their season Sunday with a home game against Seattle University. Williams-Goss said Wednesday’s exhibition win over Central Washington was a good first step.
“For it being our first live game against another opponent, I thought we did a lot of good things,” Williams-Goss said. “Obviously there’s always things to get better at and things to work on, but I thought all-in-all, it was good.”
