UW Husky Men's Basketball Thread

  • The men's team is ranked #25 going into the season. Hop has them way ahead of schedule. First game of the season is this Tuesday.

    They beat #7 Nevada in a scrimmage a couple weeks ago without Dickerson. Although, yesterday they really struggled against SPU in an exhibition game.

    This season is tournament or bust for me. Some people have picked UW to win the conference, so I expect them to at least compete for the conference title and make the NCAA tourney.

    This may be the best Seattle sports team of the major teams in the city.

  • Not going to make a new thread, so i'll kind of just make this the pac 12 basketball thread. Manute's kid, Bol Bol is going to be fun to watch this year. 7'2", drilling turn around 3 point jumpers.

    Ducks will be great in the paint. Probably the best shot blocking team in the country. A little bit worried about guard play.

  • Should be a fun season with everyone returning and the added depth. I thought last year depth was their biggest hurdle.

  • Well, Hop and the boys got the win. They didn't look like world beaters for a lot of the game but the depth sure showed up on defense. The announcer explained it best I think when he said the Huskies have to get out of the mindset of "Hero ball" when they go into droughts. Guys have to stop chucking up 3's and fall-away jumpers, and get into the paint when the offense stalls at times.

  • Western Kentucky is more than a solid team, they will likely win their conference and be in the NCAA tournament.

    Big game tonight against Auburn, we likely lose as they are the better team and we have to travel all the way across the country.

  • Not sure how the huskies are doing, but the ducks are god awful. Altman has all of a sudden turned into Romar, getting top level recruits but not having a clue how to build a team or create chemistry.

    Yes. College basketball has done away with RPI and uses a new NET ranking system. UW moved from 61 to 44 in NET after the loss to Gonzaga. Definitely a resume builder for UW.

    Zags are the much better team, but UW played a great game. Hopkins is such a great coach, one of the few coaches that can take a weaker team, go on the road, and nearly beat the best team in the nation. He did it last year against #1 ranked Kansas.

  • Hopkins looks like he actually has a vision for his team and knows how to implement it. Something that cannot be said for Romar. I used to enjoy following Husky basketball before they canceled with GU and plummeted to irrelevance.

    I believe they made a good hire. Its also interesting that of all the teams Few has played against Syracuse seems to have his number. Maybe that factored into that hire. Or maybe not.

  • The Huskies played well against the Zags considering they had most of their front line players in foul trouble (Dickerson and Wright fouled out in the end). However, David Crisp is a liability on the floor. The dude bricks 3 pointers and layups at an equal rate. He's awful offensively.

    Thanks. They probably lost ground crapping the bed against Seatlle (which happens to be a beautiful campus in my neighborhood), though. They could blew them out by 30.

  • Kentucky's Quade Green had decided to transfer to UW. He was a 5-star PG, will be a huge upgrade over Crisp when he becomes eligible. There is some confusion on when and how many years of eligibility he will have. Sounds like either 1.5 years or 2.5 years depending if he redshirts for a season. Either way, huge get by Hop.

    Still working on getting both McDaniels and Steart, both are top 10 prospects. If we can get both, I think this team can go to a final four. If we can get one, I think we likely make the tourney. If we get neither, probably another season as a bubble team. This is all assuming Nowell comes back, which I expect him to.

  • Huskies off to a nice 2-0 start in conference play. Think there is a great chance they can win the Pac-12 this season.

    Word is that Isaiah Stewart is likely coming to UW, would be a huge get. Top 10 recruit for next season, above the rim PF. Now lets just hope they land McDaniels. It would basically be adding three 5-star kids for next season.

  • People are sleeping on the Husky basketball team. Hop is building something special. I always find myself surprised by how little following the basketball team gets. The Stewart signing is huge, but most anyone following the situation had an idea he was coming to UW since last week. Now time to get McDaniels.

    If they do get McDaniels, national championship is a realistic expectation for this team.

    I think Nowell stays. He is yet to show up on draft boards, if he does decide to declare, he will be a 2nd round guy. Great college player, but doesn't have the size or athleticism to play the SG in the NBA. If he wants to play in the NBA, he will need to be a PG. I feel pretty confident about Nowell being here at least one more season.

    Also think there is a much better shot at us getting McDaniels. Stewart is going hard after him along with the coaches and players. I believe McDaniels is also close with Quade Green who just transferred to UW from Kentucky, the other school that McDaniels is considering.

    I think Stewart is only the second top 10 players to come to UW (Fultz the other), but to have two in the same class, that would be amazing. UW has never had an issue getting talent, but we've also never had a coach like Hop before.

  • It's kind of ironic because I remember quite a few people (myself included sadly) wanting to hold onto Romar to keep that class he had coming in with MPJ. What a disaster that would have been. Now they're in position to possibly land an even better class than that one with 2 top 10 guys and a former 5-star transfer. All that with a much better coach, and much better depth / healthier program.

    I don't understand why anyone would want Romar around still. He had plenty of time to turn things around. He can't coach defense. Never has, probably never will. Constantly got outcoached against other big schools. With Hopkins we are actually seeing the team play defense for once, and his background with Syracuse is helping UW land nice recruits. Perimeter shooting still an issue at times with this team but the defense is there .

  • A lot of people wanted Romar to stay, but was only because of the recruiting class. Hop is a really great coach, I honestly think he is one of the best coaches in the nation. IMO, Altman has been the best coach in the Pac for several years, I think Hop will challenge him for best coach in the conference.

    I think it's the first 7-0 start since the 52-53 season. A lot of that has to do with how bad the conference is, but still impressive. Two road sweeps in college basketball is far from easy.

    UW has always had talent, but never had great coaching to go with the talent. We get to see both of those with Hop now.

    I’ve been impressed with coach Hop so far. ...and the guy so far looks like a great recruiter.

    I don't still want Romar around, I don't think anyone has or will say that... What I said was at the time I wanted to keep Romar to take a shot at a final 4 run with that top recruiting class. At the time I didn't think we'd ever see a recruiting class that good again at UW. My opinion ended up being wrong which I was admitting to in my post. I know that's not very common here on .net (people able to admit they were wrong), so I won't hold it against you for missing it. :lol:

    I am fully on board with Coach Hop now and loving the zone D. Husky basketball has a very bright future!

  • There really isn't a set amount of wins they need to get to, but it is all about the resume. NCAA created the quadrant system last year, and now they have done away with RPI and added NET. The link below explains NET as well as the quadrant system.

    https://www.ncaa.com/news/basketball-me ... ll-ranking

    Here is a brief summary of our resume, which has improved a lot since the conference schedule has started.

    Record: 17-4 (8-0 in conference)
    NET: 29
    RPI: 21
    SOS: 52
    Quadrant 1: 0-4
    Quadrant 2: 5-0
    Quadrant 3: 6-0
    Quadrant 4: 6-0

    Just a few days ago we had two quadrant 1 wins, but both Oregon schools moved outside the top 75 of the NET rankings. The Minnesota loss really hurt, as we should have won that game if not for a missed travel call. We played our best competition early in the season, but played our worst ball then. The conference is really down, likely only a 1 or 2 bid league. Possibly a 3 bid league if there is an upset in the conference tourney. I fully expect us to make the NCAA tourney. If we can beat both the Arizona teams next week, we can go undefeated in conference. I think splitting against them would be fine too. Should be a fun game tomorrow, lets get another win.

  • This team is flying under the radar. People will start paying attention once March comes around. This is probably the best sports team in Seattle this year, and they get little to no recognition. Just look at this board, Mariners offseason thread has like 5 pages, and that franchise is awful.

    This team could go far in the NCAA tournament, possibly getting further than Romar ever took them. Hop is building a hoops powerhouse out West. Awesome that UW hoops and football are both Pac-12 champions.

    It is, but I like it when the local teams are overlooked. The element of surprise can be huge in catching opponent team s sleeping, see the Gonzaga team they almost beat earlier in the year at the zags house.

  • They are legit good, it's a bummer that the Pac-12 is down, but they can only play who is front of them. They also almost beat Gonzaga. It's ridiculous they are not ranked though. Just my own opinion, but assuming they make the tourney, they should be a 7-9 seed, right in that area.

  • Yes, they are really good. Pac-12 is awful, but UW is being punished for being in a weak conference. They can't control who is put on their schedule. They are playing the games, and blowing out most teams. This team doesn't have the talent of the Zags or some of the other top teams, but I think they can make a run past the sweet 16 if they get a nice draw. Thybulle will likely win defensive player of the year and will have a great chance to break Gary Payton's all time record for Pac-12 steals. Watching him play is so much fun, not sure I've seen a player have such an impact on defense.

  • Cal shot lights out, UW looked tired and like they took them lightly to be honest. Good reality check for this team imo. Learn from it and get it rollin again.

  • Did Cal fans rush the court?

    That's how you know if UW is really THAT good

    Well. thats not going to last long. Just lost to an 0-15 in conference Cal team. What happened? Was UW missing guys to injuries? Or they just not show up thinking they could beat a bottom dweller by sleepwalking through the game?

    Defensive intensity was severely lacking in the first half. Dickerson never got it going, and Thybulle pulled a disappearing act. Dominic Green (shooter) also played 30 minutes and got 6 points. Just a really, really thin team, so if the players they rely on don't have it going, it can get ugly.

  • It was surprising how lazy and/or tired they looked yesterday. Shoot, every team has bad games, but they looked like they were just going thru the motions and this would be an easy game.
    Hoping it was a nice wake up call for these guys. No excuse to lose to a crap team like that. But, you still gotta' lace em up, this game proved that.

  • Pac12 tourney should at least be interesting, if not high quality basketball. Admittedly, I havnt paid any attention but it certainly seems there are no real dominant teams, which means nobody is a shoe in to advance if they dont come out and play their best. I'd assume that the only chance the conference has of getting 2 teams into the Big Dance is to have UW lose in the pac12 title game.
