After their latest heartbreaking defeat, coach Lorenzo Romar said he expects the Huskies to bounce back from Wednesday’s 78-74 loss at Oregon.

He also said Washington is close to rediscovering a winning formula and delivering a performance that would snap the team’s four-game losing streak. The next opportunity is Sunday at Oregon State. The Huskies have plenty of time to correct a defense that’s allowed opponents to shoot better than 50 percent in the past three games.

Suffice to say, time is running out on Washington, which is 11th in the Pac-12 standings at 3-7. Just eight games remain before the Pac-12 Tournament. The Huskies (14-8) would need to win five or more to get back into the NCAA tournament conversation.

Here’s the game stories in the Oregonian, Daily Emerald, Associated Press and News Tribune.
