Huskies End Season With 102-100 Loss To UAB

Posted by Brandon |

The Washington Huskies ended their season on Friday night losing to the University of Alabama-Birmingham Blazers 102-100 in one of the most exciting games of the first round. UAB's defense was just a little too much for the Huskies forcing numerous turnovers, bad shots and a very long scoring drought in the middle of the second half. Combine that with the foul trouble that Mike Jensen and Bobby Jones got into and you can understand how UAB pulled this one out. The Huskies did get it down and had a chance to win on a 3/4 court shot by Tre Simmons but his shot sailed long and UAB came out victorious.

All in all it turned out to be one of the most memorable and satisfying basketball seasons in Husky history. Down With Pants! got the opportunity to witness two of the best games we have seen since leaving Bowling Green. We also got a glimpse into the future. This team should be excellent next season with only one senior leaving the program. The entire starting five will be back and this team will build on their late-season run and be a powerhouse in the Pac-10 next season.
