SI gives Huskies props

OK, for everyone concerned that Washington hasn’t received its just due from the national media so far, here’s one outlet putting the Huskies in their top 20 – Sports Illustrated.
Even if it’s right at No. 20.
Here’s the SI writeup on the Huskies which also appears in this week’s magazine.
That issue also includes a list of the schools with the five softest schedules – with the Huskies making that ranking as well. You can’t argue that one a whole lot as UW’s schedule is unquestionably set up to produce a lot of early wins, such as Saturday’s game against American which will be interesting mostly because AU has two local players on its team – guard Garrison Carr of Issaquah and forward Brayden Billbe of Mercer Island.
UW had hoped to get a game with North Carolina this year as well, but that fell through when Marvin Williams turned pro. Otherwise, the Huskies didn’t mind having a favorable schedule this year knowing they had a young team on hand.
