Husky Men's Basketball

Huskies tough it out

Okay, back to UW hoops.
In reviewing the stats from the UCLA game, one of the most impressive things about it is that the Huskies won despite shooting just 40.3 percent, making 22-54 shots.
I figured going in UW’s best chance of winning was to have an abnormal shooting night, making a bunch of three-pointers, that sort of thing.
Instead, the Huskies simply gutted it out.
UW made just 3-8 three-pointers, and the overall shooting percentage I referenced above is the sixth-worst of the season for the Huskies. The only games they won shooting a lower percentage were Idaho (38.7) and Stanford (38.1).
UW beat UCLA because it outrebounded the Bruins 44-29 and turned in its best defensive game of the year — as noted on an earlier post, UCLA’s 31.3 percent shooting was the lowest this season against the Huskies, and the lowest since the Lehigh game (29.3 percent) on Dec. 23, 2005.
The previous low against UW this year was the second Arizona State game (34.0) — ASU also shot just 34.7 percent in the first game between the two in Seattle.
And the best omen for UW is that poor shooting by opponents is starting to become a trend — five of the last eight foes have shot 45.7 percent or lower.
