Huskies hoops links: Is Washington for real?

ESPN.com’s Eamonn Brennan has a story about the topic that’s probably on the mind of most Washington fans. Can the Huskies sustain their recent success?

He writes: “But are the Huskies this good overall? Can they sustain enough of this performance to get back to the NCAA tournament? Maybe we’ll know more after Dec. 20, when UW plays Oklahoma on a neutral court. Maybe we won’t know until January. But that we’re asking the question at all represents a step forward for a Washington program that desperately needed to take one.”

And here’s a little more cautious optimism about Washington’s fast start from Pac-12 Networks analyst Lamar Hurd.

TUESDAY AFTERNOON LINKS:

— Folks are starting to take notice of Nigel Williams-Goss.

— Here’s a story from the News Tribune about sophomore center Robert Upshaw.

— ICYMI, nice photo gallery from the UW’s win over San Diego State at GoHuskies.com.

— Let’s engage in a little circular math. No. 13 Utah (6-1) lost to No. 18 San Diego State (6-2), which lost to No. 17 Washington (7-0). According to this perverted bit of logic, the Huskies should be 13th, the Aztecs 17th and the Utes 18. At any rate, Utah knows it needs to play better – especially on the road – Thursday against cross-state rival BYU.

— Oregon State’s Langston Morris-Walker is slowly adjusting to his new role.

— UTEP knocked of Incarnate World. The Miners improved to 5-3.

TONIGHT’S PAC-12 SCHEDULE:

Utah Valley (3-4) at No. 3 Arizona (8-0), 6 p.m. ………. Pac-12 Networks
