In less than one month earlier this season, Emmett Egger played seven singles matches, lost six of them, and didn’t finish the other. Two of the losses came via the slimmest of margins in 10-point match tiebreakers. Still, he insisted that nothing was wrong with his game.
The regular season for Pac-12 men’s basketball ended on a fitting note: with unpredictable results. Now that the dust has settled, Oregon somehow finished in a tie for third in the Pac-12 tournament after losing five of its first six conference games, and the top two teams in the conference are going into the postseason on losses. So, who’s feeling lucky for Vegas this week?
After five years in college basketball, C.J. Wilcox says nothing surprises him anymore about it. So he said that when he checked Twitter on Monday morning after getting an inordinate number of mentions, he wasn’t surprised when he found out that he missed the All-Pac-12 first team.
Senior C.J. Wilcox, head coach Lorenzo Romar, and freshman Nigel Williams-Goss talk to the media about the UW's upcoming trip to Las Vegas for the Pac-12 tournament, their reactions to the all-conference honors for Wilcox and Williams-Goss, and what they're preparing to do to make a run toward in the tournament.
Almost an hour after the final horn sounded Saturday evening on the Washington men's basketball team's win over USC, C.J. Wilcox was still in his jersey. He posed for photos with fans and signed autographs. After he finished with the fans, he stuck around, sitting in the stands at Hec Edmundson Pavilion with his family and friends for just a little while longer. Even after walking up the stairs toward the exit, he waited with his five-year-old brother by his side. He shared a hug with his mother.
