Four teams are tied at 6-3 in conference play, good for 2nd in the standings and only one game behind Oregon. Arizona comes to town on Saturday before a tough road trip to play at Utah and Colorado, who just happen to represent two of the three other 6-3 teams.
The Huskies could play good basketball and still lose two of three against Arizona, at Utah, and at Colorado. That makes taking care of business against a fairly underwhelming Arizona State team critical. Slip up tonight and a huge amount of pressure would be placed on winning multiple games on the road to prevent a precipitous slide down the standings.
Noah Dickerson is questionable but warmed up like he will play.
