- The Huskies advanced to the finals of the Diamond Head Classic in Hawai’i to play Houston tomorrow by beating the hometown Rainbow Warriors 72-61. You can find my game recap here. Isaiah Stewart went off for 26 points and 13 rebounds in just 30 minutes of play before fouling out.
- Washington moved up one spot to #21 overall in the latest edition of the AP Top 25. Oregon moved to #8 and Arizona fell to #24. Colorado is essentially 27th despite beating what had previously been the #13 team.
- Washington’s Isaiah Stewart won his 2nd Pac-12 freshman of the week award for his play this past week but if last night is any indication then he has a good shot of also winning Pac-12 player of the week this week.
Congrats to @Dreamville_33 who has once again been named the @pac12 Freshman of the Week after averaging 23.0 points and 11.5 rebounds in two UW wins last week.#TougherTogether— Washington Men's Basketball (@UW_MBB) December 23, 2019

- Joe Lunardi had Washington as a #10 seed in his most recent bracketology update. If the Huskies can get the win on Christmas day it probably bumps them up about 2 seed lines.
- There may be concern about the 2020 recruiting class but Hopkins is already handing out offers in the class of 2023.
Happy Holidays everyone!
