NWSB insider and resident hoops man Steve Lee brings us his thoughts on the 2012/13 Washington Huskies basketball program. With the loss of both Tony Wroten and Terrence Ross to the NBA, the Huskies are definitely a team without a star. Incumbant big time point man C.J. Wilcox will have his hands full trying to carry the bulk of the scoring. Abdul Gaddy will have to step it up during his senior year to take over this team as the floor general.
