UW looks to defeat UO on a neutral Las Vegas court to remain undefeated.

#16 Washington Huskies (9-0) vs. #15 Oklahoma Sooners (7-2), 6:00pm Saturday, ESPNU/ESPN3.

The biggest challenge of Washington's non-conference slate has arrived, as the Huskies will attempt to remain undefeated and move up in the polls by defeating a talented and well-rounded Oklahoma squad that has only lost to #2 Wisconsin and to Creighton by two points.

Washington will hope for continued dominance from Robert Upshaw and the same calm effectiveness we have come to expect from Nigel Williams-Goss.

Oklahoma will hope to lean on scoring guards Buddy Hield and Isaiah Cousins to log a 2nd victory over a ranked Pac-12 team this year (the Sooners beat then-#22 UCLA 75-76 in November).

Enjoy the game and Go Dawgs!
