Nigel Williams-Goss shrugs off ankle issue ahead of championship
Gonzaga guard Nigel Williams-Goss turned his ankle pretty badly in Saturday’s national semifinal against the South Carolina Gamecocks. A day later, he admitted that it doesn’t feel great, but it’s not going to stop him from playing.
In his Sunday media availability, Williams-Goss admitted that his ankle, which he twisted badly the day before, was still on the sore side.

The star guard added, however, that there was no chance the issue would keep him out of Monday night’s title tilt against North Carolina.

One of Gonzaga’s opponents has been dealing with an ankle problem since early in the tournament. The hope for Gonzaga is that Williams-Goss will be more effective on his bad ankle than his counterpart has been.
