NBA projection: Wilcox has been projected by most draft analysts as a second-round pick.
Wilcox earned second-team All-Pac-12 honors and finished as Washington’s second all-time scorer behind Chris Welp and leader in career 3-pointers. Wilcox was consistent all season—at one point he put together a streak of 17 games of at least 15 points, the most in Lorenzo Romar’s 12 seasons as UW coach.
Key statistics: 18.3 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 2.5 apg, 1.6 tpg, 34.9 mpg, .453 FG, .391 3PT, .873 FT
Cool statistic: Wilcox is the only player in Washington history to score more than 1,700 career points and make more than 250 career 3-pointers.

"I think he's a lock 10-year pro, because he's a prototypical two," a college head coach said. "He's a really good shooter, probably the best in the league ... the last three years, including the first part of this year, I thought he was the best guard in the league. Sneaky athlete. He's probably a little bit better at everything than you think he is. It's pure. It's pure. Like the nets may not move sometimes." More>>
