Husky Men's Basketball

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

Just what they needed

This looked like the Huskies of old as they came out fired up and led 12-2 before the game was three minutes old, then after the inevitable Oregon run, responded to take another lead.
It’s 51-40 UW at halftime as the Huskies have hit 19-36 shots and have just four turnovers. It’s a stark contrast to the first half five days ago in Pullman when UW had just 23 points at halftime.
Justin Dentmon, getting his first start since the UCLA game, leads all scorers with 15 points and has hit all seven of his free throws, with his aggression earning him consistent trips to the line.
UW is also outrebounding Oregon 19-13 and has forced the Ducks into nine turnovers.
The big warning sign for UW is the fact that Oregon is shooting 15-27 from the field.
Oregon center Ray Schafer hadn’t played in a conference game before tonight but is getting time as the Ducks seek ways to defend UW’s big men. And he has responded with eight points.
