Husky Men's Basketball

The latest news and analysis on Husky men's hoops.

It only gets harder

Watched most of Stanford’s win over Virginia today, which only reinforced the notion that the Pac-10 might be the best conference in the country right now.
Stanford had just gotten beat at home by Cal then went cross country to beat what had been a hot Virginia team coming off a rout of Gonzaga. Here’s a story on the game.
That win by Stanford takes on extra meaning for the Huskies as that’s where UW heads next for a game Thursday in Palo Alto. UW has suffered bitter losses there the past two seasons, particularly a year ago when UW appeared ready to win before Justin Dentmon’s foul as the game ended allowed Chris Hernandez to make three free throws and tie the game, with the Cardinal then winning in overtime.
Most ominous for UW about Stanford’s win Sunday is that both of the 7-foot Lopez twins appear to be finding their game. With those two fully in the fold now, this is one team that won’t give up much, if anything, against UW inside.
Jon Brockman mentioned after Saturday’s win over Arizona State that the Bay Area trip is one the returning UW players have had circled for some time. UW also lost at Cal last year, making it the one Pac-10 trip where the Huskies didn’t win at least one game (other than the single-game trip to Washington State).
Also, one of you asked about Joe Wolfinger. We had a note on him here the other day after I talked with him before Thursday’s game. He basically said that it will be at least two weeks before he has his foot examined again, and then he will take it from there. Even if things looked good, he would then have to get cleared to play, then get in shape, etc. So he’s still a ways away from returning, and I think it’s still more likely that he sits out the whole season than that he gets on the court.
