Washington’s Dearth of Big Men

Sitting court side at the Kentucky-West Virginia game and it’s impossible not to marvel at the size of Wildcats freshman center DeMarcus Cousins, who considered Washington before choosing UK.
Cousins, 6-feet-11 and 270 pounds, is a load. He’s being defended by 6-7 Wellington Smith and Cousins makes him look small. In fact, West Virginia’s team, which towered over the Washington, is tiny compared to Kentucky.
In the past two years, the Huskies have missed on a slew of big men, including 6-9 Charles Garcia, 7-foot Josh Smith, 6-9 Enes Kanter and Cousins. Am I forgetting anyone?
The Huskies signed 6-7 Desmond Simmons, but he seems to be a wing-type of player and not a traditional post player.
Washington is still in the running for 6-9 Terrence Jones and 7-foot Aziz N’Diaye.
