New, comments

The Husky golf team hasn't been hitting on all cylinders in Toledo as UW Ace Nick Taylor slid to ninth overall in the individual competition. Today however is a new day and the Huskies enter the team match play segment with a #5 seed and face off against Arkansas. Uw is looking for its first national championship in golf.

The softball team started the CWS with a 3-1 win over Georgia that has analysts picking UW to win it all after getting a good look at all eight teams remaining.

Washington will play Pac-10 rival and defending NCAA champion Arizona State in a second-round game today. The winner gets a day off; the loser will play an elimination game Saturday night.

ESPN softball analyst Stacey Nuveman, a past college player of the year as a catcher at UCLA and a gold medalist at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, answers questions about the Women's College World Series that starts Thursday:

Q: Which team in the field of eight is your favorite?

A: I actually made the proclamation on ESPN Sunday night that I am picking the Huskies to go all the way. I like the way they are playing right now, with a lot of confidence and poise.
