Chlorophyll? More like Bore-ophyll!
- If you've taken a photo of yourself with your cellphone lately, Shaq is unimpressed.
IG ruins people lives! Everybody wanna take a selfie so they can see how many likes and comments they get! Lol! #OverIt— Shaq Thompson (@ST7_ERA) February 20, 2014
- The men's basketball team is in the midst of its worst run of the season, having gone just 1–6 in the month of February. That their latest loss was to an Oregon squad that had won just three of its past 11 games was just the icing on the cake.
- Adam Lewis reflects on the fact that Nigel Williams-Goss has experienced more losses on the hardwood in one year at Washington than he did in his four years a Findlay Prep.
- The Pac-12 will induct Brandon Roy into its Basketball Hall of Honor.
- Bob Condotta got in touch with ASJ, who more or less confirmed what anyone with working eyeballs could see last season: His suspension from the team did him absolutely no favors to his physical condition.
- National Football Post's Greg Gabriel calls Bishop Sankey a "potential steal" for a team that is able to pick him up in the third round or later. Our own Avi likes Bishop to play for the Bengals.
- Could Naijiel Hale's signing give UW the inside track to sign Snoop Dogg's son, four-star receiver Cordell Broadus?
- The men's baseball team, which is off to a strong 2–1-–1 start, heads down this week to Surprise, Ariz., to play in the Pac-12/Big 10 tournament. First up is No. 10 Indiana, whose team the Huskies take on Friday at 6 p.m. Pacific.
- I'd previously missed this, but Washington's last baseball tournament ended with the Huskies tying for the most mundane reason possible: The umpires called the game so that both teams could make it to the airport and not miss their flights. (I guess that's what happens when you play a non-revenue sport; can you imagine a football or men's basketball game ending for that reason?)
- Head baseball coach Lindsay Meggs says that Washington's new $15 million baseball facility "changes everything" about how the program will be perceived going forward.
- For our fútobol fans, you'll be pleased to learn that UW's head coach Jamie Clark was signed to a new four-year contract. Gregg Bell has more on how Clark has turned Washington's program into a contender.
- The men's golf team made a ferocious comeback in the final round of the Prestige at PGA West tournament, finishing just two shots behind Stanford.
Question of the Day
Spring football is a few weeks away, and basketball's too depressing to mention, so let's shift our focus to baseball: How likely are you to try to catch a game or three this spring? Does UW's hot-off-the-presses $15 million renovation do anything to sway your decision?
