Husky Men's Basketball

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

The morning after

Lots of people talking about the Huskies today, so let’s get to it. …
— Here’s my game story, with some of the nuts-and-bolts on what happened Saturday and what it meant.
— Times columnist Jerry Brewer says put the Huskies in the Top 25.
— ESPN’s Andy Katz wrote simply enough — Washington is here to stay — in his piece on what was learned in college basketball Saturday.
— The LA Times says the Bruins didn’t have enough heart. (Though wouldn’t you prefer if it UCLA had a lot of heart and UW just had more?)
— And here’s the LA Times notebook which helps clear up what happened on the technical foul on Alfred Aboya.
— Lots of notes on the game and links from Brian Dohn of the LA Daily News.
— The Orange County Register story focuses a little more on UCLA’s unhappiness over the officiating.
Jeff Goodman of Fox Sports says UW has a legitimate chance of winning the Pac-10 and waxes a little on UCLA’s weaknesses.
Nick Daschel of Buster Sports says the win was impressive, but the next two weeks will show just how legit UW really is.
— UW is up to 29 in the RealTimeRPI, behind only Arizona State in the Pac-10.
— UW is up to 19th in the Pomeroy ratings and he now projects a 13-5 conference record, 22-8 overall. (And note that in his stat breakdown that UW is now almost back to being an average free throw shooting team at 67.6 percent, just off the national average of 68.6).
— Lots of good Pac-10 links from Mike Tokito at the Oregonian, who speculates that OSU’s Roeland Schaftenaar may be the conference player of the week. He’d be worthy — hard to believe how good he was in that win over Stanford. But I think Justin Dentmon and Isaiah Thomas are deserving, as well, with my nod to Dentmon as a senior who’s never been honored.
All for now.
