Gonzaga junior Nigel Williams-Goss is one of 10 finalists for the Cousy Award, which honors the top point guard in Division I basketball.

The award is named after Bob Cousy, a Naismith Hall of Famer and former Boston Celtic and Holy Cross guard.

Williams-Goss leads Gonzaga in scoring (14.8 points per game), assists (4.9) and steals (1.6). He’s second in rebounding (5.6).

Williams-Goss ranks second in the WCC in free-throw percentage, third in steals, fifth in assists, ninth in scoring and 14th in rebounding.

Washington’s Markelle Fultz and Iowa State’s Monte Morris also made the list of finalists. Gonzaga defeated UW in December and Iowa State in November.

Williams-Goss was also named the WCC player of the week for the third time.
