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

Biggest win of year

They may not be to full maturity yet, but the Huskies did an awful lot of growing up today.
This was the team everyone expected to see all season, finally showing the potential that had them ranked No. 8 early in the year.
Two dominating inside players, timely shooting, solid defense all the way around.
A lot of momentum to take into the Pac-10 Tournament, where the Huskies will be the scariest No. 7 seed in the history of that event.
For now, I’m sticking to the thought that the Huskies have to win that tournament to make it to the Big Dance, but today’s win might open up a few possibilities down the road to explore at a later date.
Spencer Hawes had a career-high 15 rebounds along with 13 points while Brockman had 20 points and 13 rebounds.
Ryan Appleby and Justin Dentmon played the kind of perimeter defense missing too often this season, holding Collison and Afflalo to a combined 6-29 shooting.
And UW has now beaten two top 10 teams this season at home (Oregon, UCLA) and finishes the year 17-2 at Edmundson Pavilion.
This is a Sweet 16 team at home. Too bad UW had to play road games.
