The 17th-ranked Huskies were far from perfect Sunday against Eastern Washington, but their record remained unblemished following a comeback 81-77 win.

Here’s the game stories in the Spokesman-ReviewNews Tribune and Associated Press.

Here’s the box score and Washington’s updated season stats.

And here’s a look at Nigel Williams-Goss’ clutch three-pointer with 1:16 left courtesy of the Pac-12 Networks.

The Huskies (8-0) remain one of nine unbeaten teams in the country. Here’s a look at the others.

No. 1 Kentucky (11-0)
No. 3 Arizona (10-0)
Colorado State (10-0)
TCU (10-0)
No. 7 Villanova (10-0)
No. 4 Louisville (9-0)
No. 6 Virginia (9-0)
No. 2 Duke (8-0)

MONDAY MORNING LINKS:

— It’s unlikely Washington will make a considerable jump in the rankings considering only two teams (No. 13 Utah and No. 15 Butler) higher in the AP poll lost. It’s more likely, the Huskies may slip a few spots. That’s what happened on the ballot submitted by CBSsports.com’s Gary Parrish.

— Colorado is learning the value of sharing the ball.

— ICYMI, No. 16 Oklahoma received 25 points from TaShawn Thomas during an 87-68 win over Tulsa on Saturday. The Sooners improved to 6-2. They play Oral Roberts on Tuesday before Saturday’s game in Las Vegas against Washington.

Seth Davis at SI.com tries to explain why more teams are using the zone defense.
