Back from Pittsburgh

Spent all day traveling, which is why there was no post earlier today pointing you to our stories.
If you missed it, you can find our coverage here.
One thing I realized while flying is that the Huskies are due to win some close ones.
Losing two straight games by four points means the Huskies have now lost all five games this year that were decided by four points or less or in overtime — the two-OT loss to USC; a 78-77 loss at Stanford; the OT defeat at Cal; and these last two games.
Conversely, UW’s closest win of the season is the five-pointer over ASU. Maybe the Huskies simply aren’t good enough to win the close ones, but I’ve got a feeling they’ll have a few more such opportunities the rest of the way.
— The close loss to Pitt didn’t do much for UW’s RPI. The Huskies are at No. 80 today according to Pomeroy. They were at 81 heading into the game.
— On a blog-related note, a few of you have sent me e-mails wondering why you have trouble getting posts published from time-to-time. It’s nothing personal and we aren’t into banning people here. Instead, there are some glitches that arise every once in a while that cause you to get messages saying you can’t post for whatever reason — I get them trying to publish these entries. When that happens, just keep trying. The only time we delete posts are for reasons of profanity, libel, personal attack, etc., as described at the bottom of the comment form.
