The Washington Huskies are preparing for basketball season to begin and head coach Lorenzo Romar said he expects Abdul Gaddy and C.J. Wilcox to have productive seasons.

The Washington Huskies lost Terrence Ross and Tony Wroten to the NBA, but head coach Lorenzo Romar said he expects C.J. Wilcox and Abdul Gaddy to help fill the void.

After playing somewhat of a secondary role during his first two seasons, Romar said Wilcox will play a bigger role this season and will be one of the players expected to help carry the scoring load. Wilcox averaged 14.2 points per game as a sophomore last season, but that number should increase this season.

Gaddy is coming off of a solid junior season, but Romar said he expects him to have his best year at Washington this season. Romar said he also expects an increased role for Gaddy and said the Huskies will rely on him to be one of the "go-to" players.

Unlike previous seasons, Romar said the Huskies are not entering the year with any lingering injuries. They are healthy across the board including center Aziz N'Diaye. In fact, the only personnel question is whether Austin Seferian-Jenkins will join the team following football season. Romar said Seferian-Jenkins is on the roster but a decision on whether he will play basketball again this season has yet to be made.

The Huskies, like other teams around the country, begin practice Friday.
