Washington Huskies basketball: C.J. Wilcox named one of top shooters in country

Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE

CBS Sports ranked Washington wing C.J. Wilcox as the 11th-best shooter in the nation.

Washington Huskies junior C.J. Wilcox was named by CBS Sports as the 11th-best shooter in the country. The 6'5", 195 guard shot 40.1 and 40.3 percent in his freshman and sophomore seasons respectively, and he should be poised to continue that trend for coach Lorenzo Romar this year.

Wilcox averaged 14.2 points and 3.4 rebounds last season, and with the departure of Terrence Ross to the NBA will be a bigger focal point for Washington's offense.

That means Wilcox's shots will again take a significant jump in his junior season, where he took 11 shots per game. He went from 215 to 348 total attempts from his freshman year to sophomore year.

Last season, more than a third of Wilcox's shots came from behind the three-point line. The Pleasant Grove, Utah, native struggled through parts of last year with a stress fracture, but in an exhibition victory last Wednesday, Wilcox looked solid, going 7-of-14 from the floor and leading UW with 21 points.
