No moral victories now

A nice effort by the Huskies today, but unfortunately they are past the stage where that does them much good.
Interestingly, the second straight game UW has lost to a top 10 team by the score of 65-61.
But this game merely inspires a lot of wondering what might have been had Spencer Hawes been able to play that way all season. He didn’t score well, but his rebounding, defense and shot blocking were superb and made the Huskies a different team today.
The free throw differential is easy to point to (Pitt made 18-23 to UW’s 6-8) but the Huskies hurt themselves in the second half getting beat off the dribble too much on the perimeter.
Turnovers once again played a big role, as well, as UW lost 16 to just six for Pitt and the Huskies just couldn’t get enough shots to fall.
More later.
