Basketball Dots:

  • The UW MBB team’s red-hot streak came to a screeching halt against our in-state rivals after a full week off as our team came out cold from the field and porous on defense
  • Coming off of a career game from Jamal Bey last week, continued cold shooting will force Hop back to the drawing board to find scoring from a starting lineup that posted just 50 pts and a team 38% FG performance.
  • Not to be forgotten in a start-and-stop season, UW’s Women’s Basketball team hosted Stanford for their first home game in six weeks, with sophomore center Quay Miller posting a 15 pt, 5 rebound game pacing the Huskies.

Football Dots:

  • Draft season continues with a number of our departing seniors participating in the Senior Bowl. Levi Onwuzurike and Keith Taylor showed out all week during practices, but with a Levi sitting out the game with an injury, Taylor stepped up on Saturday.
  • Various outlets had a range of views on Taylor’s performance, but both former Huskies played themselves onto the draft radar of a number of teams.
  • On the recruiting front, Husky Maven sat down with incoming UW OL Robert Wyrsch to breakdown his game (and his S&C progress, now standing at 6-7 285lbs)

Elsewhere Around the Athletic Dept:

  • Here at UW Dawg Pound we post a lot of football and basketball content, but lets remember that we have Dawgs doing awesome things in other sports. First up, our Women’s Tennis team secured the win over the Idaho Vandals this past weekend.
  • Not to be outdone, our #11 ranked Women’s Volleyball team secured back-to-back wins this weekend over the Arizona Wildcats, wrapping up a 3-1 start to the season against teams form the Grand Canyon State.
  • The UW Track & Field Teams hosted the UW Indoor Preview this past weekend to open their season. I never got around to checking out a track meet in my time at UW, but it looks like we have some serious talent these days with record books being re-written over the weekend.
