Progress report

With the Pac-10 season exactly a week away for the Huskies, I thought it a good time to analyze the team a little bit using some stats as my guide.
Here’s the resulting story. In general, UW is has shown some improvement in some areas from last season — defense is a bit better, more balanced and varied scoring — but there are still some reasons for worry — too many turnovers, spotty free throw shooting, and perimeter shooting. UW won’t always get the favorable matchups it has gotten in some of the more recent non-conference games, meaning outside shooting figures to become more of a priority once Pac-10 play begins.
Anyway, you can read it and let me know what you think in the comments section.
Also today, there are two Pac-10 games thankfully ending what seemed a too-long break in action.
