It’s bad for Huskies, but it’s been worse

Washington is 2-8 in the past 10 games.

It’s the worst 10-game stretch for coach Lorenzo Romar since the 2003-04 season. That Washington Huskies team started the season 5-8, including a 2-8 downturn after a 3-0 start. The season sprang to life after an amazing 103-99 overtime win at Oregon State and as any good UW fan knows, the Huskies finished the season on an incredible run and raced into the NCAA tournament.

Chances are slim of Washington duplicating that amazing feat this season.

The Huskies are 14-13 and 6-8 in the Pac-12 with four games left in the regular season, including Saturday’s 8 p.m. game at Arizona State.

Since starting the conference 4-0, Washington has been downright awful since.

But if it’s any solace, things have been worse.

During Romar’s first season in 2002-03, Washington had a 12-game stretch where it was 2-10. The Huskies finished 10-17 and 5-13 that season. It was just the second losing season under Romar. The other occurred in 2007-08 when they were 16-17 and 7-11.

After Wednesday’s 70-52 defeat at No. 12 Arizona, we asked how many more games will Washington win this season? As of 5:30 p.m. Thursday, 35 percent of respondents said two, 33.6 said one and 18.3 said none.

Washington needs at least two regular-season wins to ensure a non-losing season.
