Another tough loss

I’ll have more later, but for now, a few quick notes on the loss that figures to be a turning point — one way or the other — for the Huskies.
They can’t lose anymore, so either the losing stops here, or this marks the day that it became apparent this team just doesn’t have it.
This was by far the most surprising loss of the year as the Huskies were just outhustled most of the day.
“We were outscrapped,” was the way UW coach Lorenzo Romar put it.
For the first time this year, UW was outrebounded — and by a shocking margin of 47-36 by a team missing two of its three best big players.
Adding more bad news, Quincy Pondexter suffered a sprained left ankle. Officially, he’s okay. But Pondexter was wearing a boot and had to be helped around by teammates to get to the bus after the game.
As for Spencer Hawes, everybody is finally acknowledging just how sick he has apparenty been, which became evident in his play today as he was outplayed by Cal’s Ryan Anderson all day. Anderon had 18 points and 14 rebounds while Hawes had 13 and five.
