Long Beach State thread

HUSKIES PULLING AWAY — UW leads 82-67 now and this will look like an easy one in the paper tomorrow, though it was still a four-point game with about seven minutes left. I’ll have more after the game.
HUSKIES 7-23 ON FREE THROWS — Really a bad night at the line for the Huskies, who haven’t been good all year, making just 61.8 percent coming in.
UW HANGING ON — UW leads 67-61 now with Dentmon having hit five straight shots.
DENTMON GOING OFF — Dentmon has scored 10 straight points for UW, hitting two three-pointers, to help UW regain a five-point lead. He has 17 for the game, closing in on his career-high of 24.
NOW UW IN A ZONE — Now it’s UW’s turn to adjust, going to a zone defense after playing man all game. Seems like UW is more willing to go zone this year than in past seasons.
LB KEEPING IT CLOSE — Ever since switching to a man defense, LB State has gotten into this one, cutting the lead now to 46-43 with 16:31 left.
UW UP 41-33 AT HALF — UW’s shooting cooled a bit, they are now at 16-33, and they lost four turnovers near the end of the half to let the 49ers climb back into it a bit. Bryan-Amaning has had a decent half already tying his career-high with eight points along with two rebounds. Smith leads UW with nine points. Dentmon has seven and Brockman six. Every UW player except Artem Wallace has played though Holiday didn’t play much and Oliver was in for only a few minutes. LB has missed a lot of inside shots in hitting just 12-33 overall and might actually really be in this game if they could make some of those.
HUSKIES UP 32-18 — UW has hit 13-22 shots in its best sustained outside shooting of the season (not that LB is guarding all that well). UW has four turnovers, two of which are travels by big guys, so the passing has been okay so far.
HUSKIES UP 27-15 — With 10:11 to play. LB stayed in a 2-3 zone while UW hit 10 of its first 15 shots. So LB is now playing man, though that didn’t help on the first try as Joel Smith hit another three. He’s 3-3.
12-9 UW AT THE 14:23 MARK — Long Beach State is playing mostly a zone and UW has taken four threes and a couple of jumpers among nine shots. UW has hit two threes and five shots overall.
STARTING LINEUP THE SAME — As it was for the Syracuse game with Bryan-Amaning at center.
PRE-GAME — We’re about 20 minutes to tipoff against Long Beach State.
In case you missed it, here’s my story today LB State coach Dan Monson, the former coach at Gonzaga who turned down the UW job in 2002.
