Husky Update...

Posted by Brandon |

The Washington Husky basketball team is flying high after losing to Gonzaga last week by first knocking off Eastern Washington 89-56 on Sunday and then tonight dismantling San Diego State 98-69.

The Eastern game was a blowout but the Huskies didn't look that good. They made a lot of mistakes and missed a ton of free throws and again got into some serious foul trouble. It didn't hurt them though as Eastern was just outclassed in all aspects of the game. Tre Simmons and Nate Robinson both had 20 points

Tonight was different though. The Huskies looked incredible. They played great defense, shot the ball ridiculously well, rebounded - really just about everything went right. They did have 26 turnovers but most of those came when the game got out of hand and just became a playground run-and-shoot contest. Simmons was on fire in the first half scoring 19 points. He finished with 23 while Robinson led the team with 24.

The 6-1 Huskies travel to Los Angeles this weekend to take on Loyola Marymount on Sunday and then have a week off before facing Julius Hodge and the 10th ranked North Carolina State Wolfpack on December 19th at Hec Ed.
