Watson started all 17 games for the Huskies and was a vital asset to the team.

So far this season, the freshmen have definitely bought in faster than previous seasons. We have a lot of upperclassmen, only two seniors, but a lot of juniors. Coming in from the start as freshmen has been able to help create a culture and start building off that base to create a program. I think all of those tying together will make this season a lot better than it has been in the past.
