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.

  • W. Kentucky was a tough match up for the opener that was a good win.

  • 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.
