Andrew Andrews suffers food poisoning

Turns out Andrew Andrews had a bad bout of food poisoning before Washington’s 67-61 loss to Utah in the first round of the Pac-12 Tournament.

He began feeling queasy Tuesday evening and had bouts of vomiting that began at midnight and stopped shortly before the game. Trainers gave him fluids intravenously.

Andrews was the last UW player to step on the floor for pregame warmups and sipped on a Gatorade while teammates ran through drills.

I didn’t really warm up too much,” he said. “They tried to put an IV in me a little bit later. Just tried to go out and play. There were spurts of energy, and spurts of not so much energy.”

When asked if there was any question he’d play, Andrews said: “I thought about sitting out, but once I got the IV in me, I started feeling a little better. I’d give it a chance.”

Andrews finished with three points on 1-for-3 shooting. He also had one rebounds, one assist and a turnover in 24 minutes.

“It’s pretty frustrating for me, but my teammates stepped up,” Andrews said. “Darin (Johnson) had a really good game, everyone else stepped up.”

Johnson tied his personal best 16 points.

The Huskies dined at Nigel Williams-Goss’ house Tuesday night, but Andrews believes he contracted food poisoning at an Italian restaurant.

That’s the last thing I ate, so I’m guessing it was that,” he said. “I’m not really a big cheese person, there was some pasta with a type of cheese on it I ate, and I think that was it.”
