GLENDALE, Ariz. — Nigel Williams-Goss spent the 2015-16 basketball season redshirting as a transfer from the University of Washington to Gonzaga, but during that time off, his goals for this season were never far from his thoughts. In fact, he typed up a list of them and saved it as the home screen on his phone.

Every text, every call, every photo, every search for directions he made was a reminder. It remained there, too, as he and Gonzaga played through this season.

About two weeks ago, Williams-Goss lost his phone — and with it, the list.

The junior guard said he didn’t bother to recreate it for his new device, though. “At this point, we only have one game left,” he said. “And there’s just one last thing to check off.”

That, of course, would be winning a national title. Everything else on the list (that Williams-Gross committed to memory) came true.

“I wanted to win the WCC [regular season] championship, I wanted to win the WCC Tournament championship, I wanted to win the WCC player of the year,” he said. “I wanted to be a first-team academic All-America and I wanted to be a basketball All-America.

“And then I wanted to win a national championship.”

He can do that on Monday night.

“I prayed for it every night and I worked for it every day, and literally every single goal I’ve been able to check off so far this year,” he said.

Somewhere, that lost phone and the list on its face are waiting for the final accomplishment.
