The Huskies started the game a little sluggish falling behind Cal 5-0 but by the end of the first half the game was never in doubt as the Huskies achieved a much needed split on the road to beat Cal 92-71 in Berkeley last night. This was a fun game to watch because the Huskies seem to do a little of everything extremely well last night.
Isaiah Thomas led Washington with 27 points and even more importantly 13 assists. He seems to have taken over the role of being a point guard with Abdul Gaddy out of the lineup. Justin Holiday added 23 and Mathew Bryan-Amaning added 22 and 11 rebounds while guiding the Huskies to victory.
This was a nice bounce back game to have after the loss at Stanford. The Huskies played poorly against the Cardinal and squandered a chance for the win. They came out and erased that trend last night by having one of their most complete games of the season.
Junior Guard Scott Suggs picked up his first start which allowed Venoy Overton to come off the bench. Overton seems to be more effective in a change-up role.
Next up for the Huskies is the Arizona schools at Hec Edmundson Pavillion.
