Husky Men's Basketball

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

March 16, 2012 at 7:29 AM

Colorado comes through in the clutch

Just one Pac-12 game to preview and review this morning. Let’s start with the Huskies.
NATIONAL INVITATION TOURNAMENT
No. 4 Northwestern (19-11) at No. 1 Washington (22-10), 7 p.m. (ESPNU):
Here’s our story on the Huskies who are still trying to embrace the NIT. Northwestern star forward John Shurna told the Everett Herald: “Anytime you’re in a tournament, you want to go out and win it. Obviously, everyone wants to play in the NCAA tournament. But to still be able to play basketball in March, that’s a good thing. Once you’re on the court, the competitive fire takes over and all you think about is trying to win.” Looks like NU coach Bill Carmody’s job status is questionable and he may need a deep run in the NIT to save his job.
NCAA TOURNAMENT
No. 11 Colorado 68, No. 6 UNLV 64 —
No matter how hectic things got in the end, everyone in the Pac-12 should feel good about this win. The Buffaloes were ahead by as many as 20 points with 13 minutes left, but saw their lead reduced to two points last night in the second round of the NCAA tourney. Despite a shaky performance at the free throw line in the final minutes, Colorado prevailed. CU fans in Boulder got to celebrate their first NCAA tourney win since beating beating Indiana in 1997. CU advances to the third round Saturday to face former Big 12 rival No. 3 seed Baylor, a 68-60 winner over South Dakota State. Andre Roberson told CBSsports.com: “We feel like we can take down Baylor. We believe in ourselves.”
AROUND THE PAC-12:
Oregon drew 5,158 for its NIT opener – nearly double UW’s attendance – partly because it gave away tickets to its students. The Ducks also priced their tickets much lower than the Huskies. Oregon’s tickets are $21-13 whereas UW’s are $35-20 and $10 for students.
— Arizona junior forward Solomon Hill will return for his senior season and will not test the NBA waters. He referenced former Washington star Isaiah Thomas and told the Arizona Daily Star: “At this point, losing in the NIT first round, I don’t think there’s anybody who would take a player like that. We lost in the first round of the NIT, didn’t make the (NCAA) tournament. (Having) 23 wins was pretty impressive on some parts but we didn’t beat anybody. I don’t really have the resume to try to leave.”
— Cal athletic director Sandy Barbour believes coach Mike Montgomery will return for his fifth season.
— In case you missed it, four-star prospect Zena Edosomwan – who once considered Washington – has decided to reclassify for 2013 and plans to attend Harvard. The 6-9 forward from Harvard-Westlake School (Calif.) was also being recruited by UCLA and USC.
