Other Returners

Jaylen Nowell, sophomore, guard. Nowell led the Huskies in scoring as a freshman with 16.0 ppg. He shot 80% from the free throw line. Additionally, Nowell was third on the team in three-point shot attempts and connected on 35.1%

Sam Timmins, junior, center/forward. The Dunedin, New Zealand native started every game for the Huskies last year. He was second on the team in rebounds averaging 4.6 per game and adding 4.3 ppg. He played almost18 minutes a game last year. He’ll probably see more playing time this season.

Nahziah Carter, sophomore, forward. He averaged 14.2 minutes last year as a freshman. He averaged 5.1 points a game in limited action.  It’s uncertain whether or not Carter will get more playing time, with the amount of other returning players.

Jason Crandall, junior, guard. The Issaquah native was used very little last year. He is a spare part on this roster.

Hameir Wright, sophomore, forward. The Albany, NY native played nearly 14 minutes a game last season. He averaged 2.6 points and 2.7 rebounds per game. The Huskies are hoping to get more production from Wright this season.

Quin Barnard, junior, guard. Barnard was a walk-on from O’Dea High School in Seattle on the 2016-17 team who saw limited action. He didn’t play at all in 2017-18

Travis Rice, junior, guard. A transfer from Northern Arizona, Rice has walked on to the Huskies team.
