Video: West Virginia downs Washington
The last time we’ll gather links following a game. Feels rather strange.
— We loaded you up in Friday’s newspaper and on the website with a game story focusing on Quincy Pondexter’s struggles, a notebook and a game at a glance.
Jerry Brewer wrote about the missed chances the Huskies let slip away.
Dean Rutz provides an insightful and colorful photo gallery.
— Here’s the game story from the Tacoma News Tribune.
— The Everett Herald writes: “The Huskies’ chance for their deepest NCAA tournament run in more than 50 years ended at the hands of a streaking West Virginia team that simply ran away from UW down the stretch.”
— The Charleston Daily Mail takes a look at a critical possession that might have been the difference in the game.
“The Huskies managed five shots right at the hoop on one possession with three looking like they’d surely roll off the rim and through the net to give them a three-point advantage, to say nothing of the momentum the No. 11 seed needed to upset the No. 2 seed in the Sweet Sixteen.”
Mike DeCourcy at the Sporting News writes: “Pondexter was completely blown out of this game. The star of UW’s runs to the Pacific-10 Tournament title and the Sweet 16, with four consecutive games of 18 points or more, he was rendered insignificant by Ebanks’ length.”
Mike Freeman at CBSsports.com examined how West Virginia coach Bob Huggins pushed the Mountaineers to beat Washington.
Freeman chronicles a sideline exchange between Huggings and a player and writes: “With the governor of West Virginia just a few feet away, Huggins went into a profanity laced fit. A short time later after, forward Wellington Smith was beaten by a shorter player Huggins screamed at him: “A [expletive] midget is whipping your ass.”
The “midget” in question was 5-foot-8 Isaiah Thomas who held his own against 6-7 Smith.
Andy Katz at ESPN.com writes: “Washington’s Justin Holiday was clearly the one player for the Huskies who was active, forcing turnovers and finishing on the break.”
