Vs. San Francisco Recap

Final Score:

86-71 Husky win (9-2)

Four Factors: 

Uncharacteristically, the Huskies got beaten on the offensive glass. It happens occaisionally, but I can't remember the last time it happened against a team that UW so clearly overmatches in terms of talent. The Don's production in that area came almost entirely from Moustapha Diarra (6 OR) and Dior Lowhorn (5 OR). It will be worth watching going forward to see if teams with more than one capable big men give them trouble rebounding the basketball. UW was able to overcome the OR deficiency by shooting the ball well (52.9 eFG% was 4th best on the year) and not turning the ball over (just 7 giveaways).

Summary:

About ten minutes into the game, the Huskies started to pull away, and the lead seemed pretty comfortable at the half. Despite Isaiah Thomas not scoring the ball, the Huskies looked in firm control of the game until Lorenzo Romar started experimenting with the lineup. He played many different combinations of players, giving 11 players 13 or more minutes, which allowed the Dons to sneak back into the game. They closed to within 4, but the Huskies turned it back on and widened the margin again.

Player of the Game:

At this point you shouldn't need to ask. It's Quincy Pondexter. 22 points (on just 12 shots) 5 rebounds, 3 blocks and 2 steals.

Stat of the Game:

The Dawgs took care of the ball better than they have in a very long time, committing just 7 turnovers.
