Ross picked Eighth in NBA Draft

Terrence Ross to

Terrence Ross, a sophomore guard with the Washington Huskies, was taken by Toronto with the eighth pick in the 2012 NBA Draft Thursday night, held at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

Ross, a 6-foot-6 guard from Portland, Ore., was once committed to Maryland while attending prep school on the east coast, but signed with the Huskies back in November of 2009.

Following in the footsteps of such productive players like Brandon Roy and Quincy Pondexter, Ross became a master of the offensive game, scoring in a variety of manners. He averaged eight points a game as a frosh coming off the bench, starting only four games. But as a sophomore Ross started all 35 games, scoring nearly 16.5 points a game. He also rebounded at a clip of nearly 6.5 boards per game.

In tournament time is where Ross shined. The First Team All-Pac-12, All-District IX Team and NABC First Team All-District 20 pick averaged 25 points per game in the 2012 NIT, where the Huskies eventually lost to Minnesota in the semifinals at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Fellow Husky Tony Wroten, a 6-foot-5 freshman guard, is also expected to be selected in the first round of Thursday's draft.
