- We start with the unfortunate news that this week’s women’s basketball games against Cal and Stanford at home are being postponed due to COVID-19 cases within the Washington program. If you had tickets for either game they will be honored for the rescheduled date.
- Jaylen Nowell got the start for a depleted Minnesota Timberwolves team and finished with 29 points and 6 rebounds to help lift them over the Boston Celtics. Jaden McDaniels also had 17 points and 5 rebounds to support the cause.

"Not gonna lie, Jaylen Nowell played awesome tonight, but I had no idea who that was."
- Dawgman has the notes from Coach Hop’s press conference yesterday where he states the status of Jamal Bey and the assistant coaching staff is unknown depending on if the Pac-12 adopts the new CDC guidelines for length of isolation period.
- Trent McDuffie officially declared for the NFL Draft yesterday which is a decision we all saw coming since about his 3rd game with the Huskies. It seems hard to imagine him slipping past the first half of the 2nd round.
Forever a Dawg!! Thank you Husky Nation pic.twitter.com/mKriCcmsnQ— Trent McDuffie (@trent_mcduffie) December 27, 2021
- Pro Football Focus has McDuffie going 19th overall to the Philadelphia Eagles in their latest Mock Draft.
- Terrell Bynum publicly announced that he has indeed entered the transfer portal after stating a few weeks ago that he would be returning to Washington for one more season.
- Bill Connelly ranks the 32 teams to have made the College Football Playoff and has the 2016 Huskies #22 overall which seems fair and is one spot behind this year’s Michigan team set to face off against Georgia on Friday.
- For Dawgman subscribers, Scott Eklund has a new recruiting blog focused on where the Huskies stand with some of the top unsigned local prospects and whether they might be targets for the new staff.
