Poll question: How will Washington fare in New York?

A couple of big early tests for Washington this week in the championship rounds of the 2K Sports Classic.

The Huskies can erase the disappointment of last week’s loss at home to UC Irvine and bolster their sagging 211 RPI rating if they can win the tournament.

To do so, Washington will have to break a five-game losing streak at New York’s Madison Square Garden. UW is 1-5 overall at the place billed as the most famous arena in the world.

The Huskies also are looking to buck an unflattering trend.

They haven’t fared well on the road in regular-season games against non-conference teams. During his UW tenure, coach Lorenzo Romar is 13-25 in those games and the Huskies haven’t had a winning record since 2004-05.

He’s 21-33 overall in non-conference road games, including an 8-8 postseason record.

Here’s the breakdown by season.

Season ……. Regular season …. Postseason …. Total
2002-03 ….. 1-3 ……………………. 0-0 …………….. 1-3
2003-04 ….. 1-3 ……………………. 0-1 …………….. 1-4
2004-05 ….. 4-1 ……………………. 2-1 …………….. 6-2
2005-06 ….. 1-0 ……………………. 2-1 …………….. 3-1
2006-07 ….. 0-2 ……………………. 0-0 …………….. 0-2
2007-08 ….. 1-3 ……………………. 0-0 …………….. 1-3
2008-09 ….. 1-2 ……………………. 1-1 …………….. 2-3
2009-10 ….. 0-2 ……………………. 2-1 …………….. 2-3
2010-11 ….. 2-3 ……………………. 1-1 …………….. 3-4
2011-12 …. 0-4 ………………….…. 0-1 ………….…. 0-5
2012-13 … 2-2 ………………….….. 0-1 …………….. 2-3

TOTALS …. 13-25 …………………. 8-8 ……………. 21-33

If Washington (2-1) can upset Indiana (4-0) in Thursday’s semifinal, the Huskies will face No. 18 Connecticut (4-0) or Boston College (1-3) in Friday’s championship game.

So here’s your chance to chime in.
