Some good, some bad in NIU win

Seattle Times – Dean Rutz

Strange game for Washington. The Huskies shot better behind the arc than they do inside the semi-circle. They connected on 9 of 25 three-pointers (36 percent) while shooting just 28.1 percent (9 of 32) on shots inside the arc.

Perhaps even more bizarre, Washington drained 22 of 24 free throws and shot a season-high 91.7 percent at the line.

UW forwards Desmond Simmons, Shawn Kemp Jr. and Jernard Jarreau struggled from close range. They combined to make 1 of 12 shots. And Andrew Andrews still has been unable to find the shooting stroke. He was 1 for 6.

But thanks to C.J. Wilcox, Aziz N’Diaye (near right) and Abdul Gaddy, Washington managed to win 67-57 in a game that was probably a step backwards in spite of the win. The Huskies took the lead two minutes into the game and never trailed again. They led by as many as 15 with 14:28 left in the second half, but they staggered down the stretch and nearly ran out of gas.

Washington converted just one field goal in the final 9:44 minutes and missed seven field goal attempts. Gaddy’s three-pointer with 3:06 left was the only field goal that fell and it gave the Huskies an 11-point lead (63-52).

However, NIU scored five unanswered points to cut its lead to six (63-57) at the 1:43 mark.

Perhaps appropriately, the game was decided on a missed shot and a rebound, considering UW dominated the glass 42-30.

Scott Suggs missed a mid-range jumper. Simmons tipped the ball to Gaddy who collected the rebound. He was fouled and made two. Wilcox also made two on the next possession while NIU finished the game with two missed three-pointers.

Washington never delivered a knockout punch like it did Thursday against Cal Poly. Instead, the Huskies hung on and waited for the clock to expire on NIU, which fell to 2-9.

There weren’t many positives for the Huskies. They improved to 8-4, but a win against a team with a 326 RPI rating isn’t going to bolster the resume. They got good work against a full-court press. Andrews, playing his second game since a three-game injury layoff, nearly doubled his minutes from Thursday. N’Diaye and Wilcox proved again they can dominate against lesser-caliber opponents.

“Interesting game for us, I can’t remember a game where we shot 31% from the field, that hadn’t been a pattern for this team,” coach Lorenzo Romar said. “You go back and look, 11 years that we’ve been here, and I think we shot  under 47 percent maybe one or two times in eleven years, so we have  been shooting a high percentage and then tonight all of a sudden, with a lot of open looks the ball didn’t go down. Thank goodness our free throws did and I don’ t know if that was a carry over to some other areas of the game. We didn’t have 20 turnovers but our turnovers led to points for them, made it a little easier for them to get buckets at times. But give them credit, they are a scrappy team. (NIU’s Abdel Nader) is very good offensive player, hard to deal with.”
