Husky Men's Basketball

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

A day for defense

The Huskies won this one in a most unusual way — with their defense. That’s been their main weakness much of this season but one they appear to be on the way to improving if this game is any evidence.
The 52 points scored by Stanford is the fewest allowed by UW in a conference game this year and the second-lowest of the season — the only lower total was Weber State’s 51 on Dec. 22.
Another good sign is that Spencer Hawes looks back to his old self — in the starting lineup and leading the Huskies with 18 points and seven rebounds in 30 minutes while helping hold the Lopez Twins to a combined 13 points.
And for another night, the Huskies keep those NCAA Tournament fires at least on the back burner.
Wednesday’s game against WSU takes on that much more importance now.
