Husky Men's Basketball

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

The day after

First, some links to UW-related coverage out there today:
— My main story that focused on the physical nature of the game and all of the apparent trash talking by the Beavers that started at 10 a.m. when the two teams had a brief encounter during the pre-game shootaround.
— The notebook, with a lead item on the Jon Brockman-C.J. Giles incident.
— And columnist Steve Kelley on the emerging young players on the team and the bright hope for the future.
— The Oregonian has this game story and this column fron John Canzano speculating again that OSU coach Jay John could be gone this week. Here also is the Beaver Beat blog.
IN OTHER GAMES:
Stanford handed Arizona State its first conference loss as the Huskies now prepare to play the Sun Devils in Tempe.
— Arizona avoided a disastrous Pac-10 start by getting a road win at Cal.
— And in the upset of the season so far, USC won at UCLA, though the nature of that rivalry rarely has me really shocked by anything that happens in that one.
TODAY’S PICK:
OREGON AT WASHINGTON STATE: Oregon has won an amazing 13 in a row against the Cougars making it the only team WSU hasn’t beaten since Dick Bennett took over as coach, something that is an obvious source of frustration to everyone involved. Even more amazing, Ernie Kent is 20-1 against the Cougars. Simply going with the law of averages, if nothing else, has me thinking the Cougars are going to win. Also, after watching Oregon’s point guard struggle against UW the other night, I think that will be the biggest advantage for the Cougars. WSU 67, Oregon 58.
