Closing Comments

The Huskies are in desperate need of a win after losing to the Cougars last weekend, but as we have seen throughout the conference it is tough to win on the road. The UW needs the effort on the defensive end to step up to have any chance to win this one, but a bounce-back game for both Andrew Andrews and Nigel Williams-Goss would also help. The Huskies are never the same team on the road and Utah is a tough defensive team, so I will take the Utes 68-62.
