Huskies sitting on NIT bubble

For the past few weeks, the Huskies didn’t want to talk about the National Invitation Tournament while focusing on capturing the Pac-12 tournament, which rewards the winner with an automatic berth to the NCAA tournament. After Wednesday’s 67-61 loss to Utah in the Pac-12 tourney opener, the Huskies will spend the next few days wondering…

UW closes regular season on high note

Just think, Washington was thisclose to finishing in a six-way tied for third place in the Pac-12 standings. What if the Huskies had taken care of business against Washington State last month? Then UW would have a 10-8 conference record and join the logjam at third. Instead, Washington matched last season’s league record at 9-9…

Turnovers, poor defense doom Huskies

Washington scored enough points Thursday night to beat UCLA, especially at home with a late-arriving crowd of 6,894 at Alaska Airlines Arena ready to explode. The Huskies gave the enthusiastic crowd reasons to cheer during an entertaining first half, in which both teams shot better than 48 percent from the field. Washington led 45-41 at…

Too little, too late for Huskies?

In their last two outings, the Washington Huskies have crushed their opponents 158-111. They’ve committed fewer than 12 turnovers each time and shot better than 50 percent from the field. And in each of the last three halves, Washington has surrendered fewer than 30 points. “If you can script it that way, you want to be playing…

UW crushes Oregon State in 24-point victory

Considering the score – Washington 86, Oregon State 62 – and the margin of victory (24 points) and the location (Gill Coliseum), you could make the case that Saturdays’ game was easily the best performance this season by the Huskies. And you probably wouldn’t get much of an argument from coach Lorenzo Romar. “I don’t know,”…

Huskies come close, fade down the stretch

It says a lot about how far the Washington Huskies have fallen when coach Lorenzo Romar applauds the players’ resolve after a 78-71 defeat for their seventh straight road loss. He made a point to say UW didn’t make enough plays at the end to snap the road losing skid, but after chiding their mental toughness days…

Lorenzo Romar: ‘We just have to be mentally tougher’

At this point, Washington would be fortunate to finish in the National Invitation Tournament. That’s the cold hard truth following a demoralizing 72-59 loss to California on Saturday afternoon at Alaska Airlines Arena. The Huskies (14-12, 6-7 Pac-12) are 1-4 in past five games before a two-game road trip. Considering Washington is 1-6 on the…

Huskies snap three-game losing streak

Something had to change. The Huskies had little energy at the start of Wednesday’s game against Stanford. They had 12 first-half turnovers. They were down six at the break and appeared headed to a fourth straight defeat, which would all but snuff out any chance at earning a NCAA tournament at-large berth. So coach Lorenzo…

Colorado stampedes Washington in a rout

This sign (above) is posted in the middle of the visiting locker at Coors Events Center. It’s meant to intimidate opposing teams. When Kelvin Sampson was coach at Oklahoma State, he would pry it down. Oregon coaches used athletic tape to cover up the sign. And some teams would drape towels over it. The origin of…

Another second-half collapse dooms UW

For the second straight game, Washington lost on the road to a team that carried a losing streak into the contest. Before Washington State toppled the Huskies 72-67 last Saturday at Beasley Coliseum, the Cougars had lost four straight games. And before Utah dropped UW 78-69 Thursday at Hunstman Center, the Utes had lost three straight. These…
