Huskies getting defensive

Definitely the best half of defense for the Huskies this year as UW has held UCLA to 8-31 shooting. Lorenzo Mata is 3-5 inside and Russell Westbrook 2-3. The rest of the Bruins are 3-23.
That has helped the Huskies to a 31-20 lead and Hec Ed is rocking like it was, uh, last season.
Justin Dentmon is doing a great job keeping Darren Collison out of the middle, and the UCLA point guard has just one assist and no points, going 0-5 from the floor.
The Huskies are just 12-32 itself and have missed a few open shots that could come back to haunt them.
Also, UCLA is more used to being behind than you might think — the Bruins are 7-3 in games in which it has trailed by 10 or more points this season.
