Husky Men's Basketball

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

Cal aftermath

The Huskies are practicing at 8 a.m. tomorrow to allow the coaches to hit the road recruiting for the night with the Stanford game not until Sunday afternoon.
Which means those of us who cover the team have to be back here around 9 a.m. or so to get any interviews tomorrow. And means a short post tonight so I can get home.
That said, I think there were a lot of good things tonight.
Those of you who have wanted to see the Huskies go inside more on offense got your wish as UW attempted just 10 three-pointers in 51 field goal attempts. Jon Brockman (8-13) and Spencer Hawes (7-12) attempted almost half of UW’s shots and made more than half (the Huskies were 29-51).
Brockman had five turnovers as he was as aggressive offensively as he has been all season. And there were a few other sloppy turnovers, as well. But UW had only six in the second half after losing 10 in the first half, one reason they outscored Cal 42-35 after the break after it was 79-71 at halftime.
The other big edge for UW was on the boards as the Huskies outrebounded Cal 37-23. I have a lot more on this in my game story on-line (after midnight) and in the pages of the Times tomorrow.
I’ll also have some more on the lineup change, with Quincy Pondexter back in at forward for Phil Nelson.
Nelson played just eight minutes and didn’t score and Hans Gasser didn’t play at all for just the second time this year as the Huskies really shortended the rotation.
UW is now 15-8 and has won four of five. Certainly, three of the wins have come against the three teams now behind UW in the standings. But turnarounds have to start somewhere.
“We’re taking baby steps,” was the way Justin Dentmon put it.
They’ll need to do more than that against Stanford and WSU in the next two games, however.
