Husky Men's Basketball

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

Off to PIttsburgh

And as you can see by the post time of this blog, I had quite the early flight. Heard a lot of horror stories of traveling back east this week so hoping it all goes okay. But I may have no time for quite a while to post so figured I’d do this now.
Here’s our story from today setting up Saturday’s game with a little of the history of how it came together. The Huskies don’t plan to make a regular habit of playing non-conference games during the conference season but didn’t have much choice with this one.
Here, also, is a look at Pitt coach Jamie Dixon and how he is handling the loss of his sister, Maggie,
who died suddenly last April of heart failure at age 28 after coaching Army into the NCAA Tournament.
