Welcome to the year of the freshmen

Welcome to the year of the freshmen

Nigel Williams-Goss is focused.

The bright lights and cheers -- boos once he leaves Seattle -- he'll encounter soon don't preoccupy him now.

He's just maneuvering through the typical transition required by all freshmen basketball players.

He's somewhat homesick, but he's not overwhelmed by his personal responsibilities, such as laundry. Workouts are manageable, and he's jelling with his new teammates.

 
He's unburdened.

For now.

"I don't really feel any pressure because I still look at myself and my team as underdogs," said Williams-Goss, ranked 19th in the 2013 class by RecruitingNation and headed into his first year at Washington. "We just have a whole bunch to prove this year."
