The honors are stacking Gonzaga’s Nigel Williams-Goss.

The junior guard was named to the Naismith Trophy top 30 list, released by the Atlanta Tipoff Club on Thursday. The award is presented to college basketball’s player of the year.

Williams-Goss leads Gonzaga in scoring (15.6 points per game), assists (4.8) and steals (1.7). He previously made the Wooden Award late season top 20 list and he’s a finalist for the Cousy Award, presented to the top point guard.

Williams-Goss was also named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District Team, announced by the College Sports Information Directors of America on Thursday.

Williams-Goss has a 3.84 grade-point average. He recently graduated with an undergraduate degree in psychology. The Happy Valley, Ore., native, is now working on his master’s degree.
