Previous Q&A's: Gaddy | Overton

The Husky men's basketball team welcomes three incoming freshmen that are expected to help in the defense of Washington's Pac-10 Championship. C.J. Wilcox out of Pleasant Grove, Utah is the most heralded sharp-shooter out of the trio and could see significant action. But don't corner him down solely as a shooter, as he has displayed excellent athleticism and the ability to get to the bucket too. Are you getting excited for the freshman season?

C.J. Wilcox: "Definitely, definitely." When was your first "I've made it to big-time college basketball," moment?

CW: "Probably the first time we did open gym when we had a couple of the NBA guys come down. It was real cool that it was all about to start. [Brandon Roy] hasn't been playing, he's just watched a couple times, but we've played with Jamal Crawford." Do you feel like you are starting to fit in with the rest of the team being a freshman?

CW: "At first it was kind of rough because I'm kind of quiet. We've gotten to know each other really well though." If you could describe the personality of this team, what would it be?

CW: "Probably goofy. We all joke around and laugh together and have a lot of fun." It looked like you were having a lot of fun when they showed the team on the screen at the football game against Arizona recently.

CW: "That's how we are everywhere. We are always being goofy, messing around and having fun together." Your shooting has been one of the most exciting things about the new class, how is it progressing?

CW: "Gaddy and I work on our shooting every day. It helps. When I don't shoot for a while, I lose my touch. Other than that, they know me as a shooter, so that's what I'm doing." What else do you bring to the table?

CW: "Quickness and defense. I'll keep working on defense." What are your goals for your freshman year?

CW: "I'm just trying to get on the floor and get as many minutes as possible. I'm not saying how much I want, I just want to play." School's really starting to get going with midterms coming up. How do you like your classes?

CW: "It's cool. It's a little bit of an adjustment with time management and all that but other than that it's really cool." Are there any games that you are especially looking forward to and any opponents that stick out in your mind?

CW: "I would say Georgetown. Hopefully the Pac-10 is good too, because I have wanted to play a lot of them too. It should be exciting."
