Husky Men's Basketball

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

At Mac Court

I’ve arrived at Mac Court, wading through a few hundred students waiting outside for the doors to open on my way.
The Oregon looks in prime form for UW’s annual visit — I saw a few fans holding up “Have fun in the NIT” signs, and one guy holding a photo of Ryan Appleby with his face bloodied after the hit from Aaron Brooks in the Pac-10 tournament last year. Hopefully that part of it doesn’t get too ugly.
The bigger picture is the Huskies are going to have to really bring it to get a win here today. As I pointed out from Pitt, I didn’t think that was a very intimidating environment at all, nothing like the Huskies will get here today, and UW has yet to show this year it can stand up to a real crazy crowd, getting blown out at Gonzaga, WSU, Arizona and UCLA. The Huskies did hang in against Stanford, which is on a par in terms of environment with most of the others. But overall, that’s not much of a track record.
The first five minutes will likely tell a lot. In most of the previous road blowouts, the Huskies fell down big early and never recovered. They’ve got to get some confidence from the start tonight.
UW has won here the last two years and hasn’t won three straight here since 1980-82.
Also to watch tonight — Spencer Hawes needs just 11 points to pass Mike Hayward for the most points by a freshman in UW history. Hayward had 406 in the 1987-88 season.
