Washington's Wilcox Has Foot Surgery

University of Washington basketball player C. J. Wilcox had surgery on his foot a week ago Friday.
Wilcox suffered a left foot injury in early February and after a spectacular first half of the season when he posted more than 20 points per game, he rarely practiced and wore a walking boot when he wasn't playing.
According to a release, Wilcox had a stress fracture in his left foot, and the surgery was to stabilize his fifth metatarsal. He should be recovered in time for the start of the 2013-2014 season.
Wilcox pondered entering the NBA draft in April, but decided before the deadline to return to the Huskies for his senior year of college. Wilcox, a 6-foot-5 senior, averaged 16.8 points and shot almost 37 percent from the 3-point range last season.
Washington will lose their top three scorers after Wilcox, but guard Andrew Andrews, Shawn Kemp, Jr., and Desmond Simmons are returning next year. Key new players are Nigel Williams-Goss and transfer Perris Blackwell.
The team finished 18-16 last season, 9-9 in Pac-12 play before losing to BYU in the NIT. For the Huskies to remain competitive this upcoming season, they will need a healthy Wilcox.
