Huskies head back East

New, 12 comments

The Huskies flew to Charlotte on Tuesday packed for a long trip that could keep them back East for a week or two depending on how things go this weekend. If Washington somehow makes it into the Sweet Sixteen they won't be coming home for awhile.

While in Charlotte the team will be staying at the Renaissance Charlotte Southpark. There is no official hotel or gathering place for the fans other that at the game on Friday night.

They are a really good defensive team.  Strength inside.  Way they defend is the way USC defends.  Thompkins and Price, very physical and strong, very active. 

They have capable guards.  Leslie - athletic, strong and durable.  We'll have to see when we get out on the floor.  Leslie reminds him of the Odom guard from Marquette.  Took to the second half for Isaiah to lock him down.  Just don't know what you need to do until you get on the court and figure it out.
