Guess the UW Score: Eastern Washington

Are you still believing in Washington after last week’s upset? We’ll see how the picks go today.

But before we get to the Eastern Washington game, let’s review Washington’s 86-72 defeat to UC Irvine.

Only two posters picked against the Huskies and progressivedawg came away with the win after predicting UW would fall 82-79.

Good job PD. You know the deal, contact me via email (pallen@seattletimes.com) or Twitter to claim your prize.

And we’ll post this again the newbies. Here’s how the GTUWS game works. You make your predictions in the comments section on this thread. The closest to the final score wins a hot dog and soft drink at a Washington home men’s basketball game on me.

Alright, let’s move on.

SUNDAY’S SCHEDULE:

Stanford (2-1) at Denver (0-1), 11 a.m. ……………………………… ROOT

Oregon State (1-1) at Maryland (1-1), 3 p.m. ……………………… ESPNU

Eastern Washington (1-0) at Washington (1-1), 5 p.m. ………. Pac-12 Networks

Picks: Stanford and Maryland

Season tally: 19-6

AND THE UW-EWU WINNER IS …

The Huskies 78-66.

Las Vegas oddsmakers made Washington a 12-point favorite and that feels about right.

Since coach Lorenzo Romar took over, the Huskies are 6-1 in games following a non-conference home defeat.

Nov. 24, 2012 …….. L, 73-55 ……………. Colorado State

Dec. 8, 2012 ………… L, 76-73 …………… Nevada
Dec. 13 ……………… W, 87-74 …………. Seattle University

Romar usually focuses on improving the defense following surprising defeats. Look for the Huskies to increase the pressure on the perimeter and try and force the Eastern Washington guards into turnovers to ignite a dormant offense that produced just four fast-break points against UC Irvine.

The Huskies would like to score in transition as much as possible and not face Eastern’s formidable front line that features 6-10 forward Martin Seiferth and 6-7 forward Venky Jois who combined for 68 and 66 blocks last season. Washington had difficulty with UCI’s 2-3 zone that held UW to 37.5 percent shooting and blocked 13 shots.

Even with their injury-depleted front line, the Huskies should have enough firepower to subdue the Eagles at home.
