Former Pleasant Grove star Wilcox making his mark for Washington

SEATTLE — Former Pleasant Grove High star C.J. Wilcox is certainly making his mark with the Washington Huskies. The senior entered Wednesday night’s game against the Utes as the Pac-12’s second-leading scorer with 20.2 points per game. The 6-foot-5 guard averaged 16.8 points as a junior, 14.2 as a sophomore and 8.1 as a freshman.
Utah forward Jordan Loveridge never went against Wilcox during his days at West Jordan High but did watch him play a lot when he was younger. They’ve even played together in open gyms and know each other a little bit.
“I saw him play a lot in competitive, like super league ball, so I knew how good he was and so I always knew he was going to be a special player,” Loveridge said. “So it didn’t surprise me when I saw his numbers and everything like that.”
In Wednesday’s 59-57 win against the Utes, Wilcox finished with 14 points.
