Husky Men's Basketball

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

The morning after

Finally for UW fans, a lot of good reading on the day after a game.
Here’s a story from the Oregonian emphasizing how the Ducks’ small lineup failed them against UW’s bigger lineup. Would Aaron Brooks have made a difference in that? Guess we’ll found out in Eugene next month.
The story points out that Ernie Kent did try to match UW’s size, giving reserve big men Mitch Platt and Ray Schafer some uncommon playing time — the two had combined for one minute in Pac-10 play before last night — and while it worked a little bit, ultimately couldn’t stem the tide.
Here’s a story from the Eugene Register-Guard making the solid point that Justin Dentmon was able to have such a good night because he exploited his size advantage on Oregon’s 5-6 guard, Tajuan Porter. That might be the biggest area where Brooks could have made a difference.
In looking ahead to Saturday’s game against Oregon State, here’s a story from the Oregonian concentrating on the fact that the Beavers shot an astonishingly bad 6-19 from the free throw line against Washington State. That’s almost hard to believe. OSU coach Jay John has often this season said his team simply doesn’t shoot well and this is more obvious evidence of that.
Here’s a story from the Corvallis Gazette-Times making many of the same points about OSU’s offensive problems. UW needs to make those continue for at least another day.
Here, also, is our coverage from today.
Also, to answer a question asked here earlier about the Pac-10’s RPI — it doesn’t really impact the overall conference RPI when the teams beat up each other. It just makes the RPI’s of those teams go up and down. But the Pac-10 still has a few non-conference games that will impact that RPI, including Saturday when Arizona hosts North Carolina. The Huskies should be rooting for Arizona to win that game and keep the Pac-10 RPI as the best in the country.
