Huskies handled UCLA, Weber in Seattle

Here’s a fun fact for you as you watch UCLA and Weber State — this is a matchup of two teams that lost by a combined 39 points in Seattle this season.
The Huskies beat Weber State 80-51 on Dec. 22 in the wake of the win over LSU, and defeated UCLA 61-51 just 12 days ago in what was the highlight of UW’s season.
To answer one question that has arisen here regarding the Huskies:
— I think Tim Morris can have a great impact next year, especially on the defensive end. He played most of three seasons at Stanford so he has a lot of experience, and sitting out a year has allowed him to work on his offense — the main weakness in his game is shooting — and refine his defense.
“He’ll be able to help us defensively and give us more depth there,” UW coach Lorenzo Romar said the other day.
Here are Morris’ career stats and you can see he struggled from the field his last year at Stanford, particularly the 4-23 from the 3-point line. He’s better in transition, however, one reason he wanted to come to UW, which typically runs more than does the Cardinal under Trent Johnson.
