IN OTHER NEWS:
— Interesting to note basketball statistician Ken Pomeroy has Washington at No. 39 in his ratings. He projects the Huskies will end the regular season with a 22-8 record, which includes a third-place finish in the Pac-12 at 11-7. If Pomeroy is accurate, UW would likely receive an invitation to the NCAA tournament, which would snap a three-year Big Dance absence.
— Washington ranked 29th nationally while allowing 57.6 points before Sunday’s game. The Huskies are 63rd before Monday’s game at 60.0 points per game. However, they’re still among the NCAA leaders in opponents field goal percentage (34.0), which ranks fifth. UW opponents are shooting 26.1 percent on three-pointers, which ranks 11th.
— Robert Upshaw leads the country with 39 blocks and 4.9 blocks per game.
— Nigel Williams-Goss is second in the Pac-12 and 11th in the nation with 6.4 assists per game.
