Video: Washington vs. UConn preview

Nice preview (below) of the Washington-Connecticut game on Saturday from Pac-12 Networks analysts Ernie Kent and Lamar Hurd. The clash between Huskies is being billed as the Pac-12 game of the week and it’s a big-time opportunity for UW.

Washington’s RPI has plummeted to No. 96  since their last trip to Connecticut when it beat Seton Hall and lost to Ohio State in the Tip-Off Hall of Fame Tournament. UConn (9-2) is 24th in the RPI and has the second lowest RPI of any of UW’s previous opponents. A win for Washington obviously would improve its resume and chances for NCAA at-large berth if it’s a bubble team in March.

Kent noted UW will need to improve defensively if it has any hopes of winning Saturday. The Huskies are 11th in the Pac-12 in scoring defense, allowing 68.2 points per game.

Hurd said Washington needs someone to step up and take control of the game. Candidates include C.J. Wilcox, who is third in the conference with a 19.6 scoring average and Abdul Gaddy, a four-year starter.
