Gotta do what you can just to keep your Dots alive
Trying not to confuse it with what you do to survive
- The Husky men’s basketball team led #6 Arizona 44-42 early in the second half. From that point forward, the Wildcats outscored the Dawgs 53-28: not the kind of defensive performance you would want from a coach who prides himself on that end. With the Huskies continuing to flounder at 5-7 in conference and a readily apparent chasm between their performances and the conference’s elite, Larry Stone writes that time may be running short on the Mike Hopkins era.
- The women’s team avoided an embarrassing result against Arizona State. The 55-53 road win dropped the Sun Devils to 0-10 in the Pac. The defense got the job done, giving up only six points in the final 6:20 of the game.
- Christian Caple’s latest mailbag takes NIL questions head-on: specifically, Caple is clear that he will not speculate on NIL amounts or report on rumors that aren’t substantiated. It’s a decreasingly common stance in journalism, but it’s a good one.
- UW hasn’t had the best luck recruiting high school tight ends in recent years. Greg Biggins notes that Decker DeGraaf, one of the top 2025 TEs in the west, had a great visit to UW over the weekend. DeGraaf was one of several recruits on campus over the weekend and Dawgman has notes on many of them.
- You didn’t have to stay up until Australian prime time to see high end tennis this weekend. The Dawg women’s team dominated Portland State 6-1. The decisive victory keeps UW’s record at a perfect 4-0.

EDIT: BREAKING NEWS DOT
- Former Husky QB Sam Huard officially announced he is transferring to FCS Cal Poly where the new offensive coordinator is his former HS coach Sheldon Cross. It would not be a surprise to see fellow UW transfer Lonyatta Alexander join his former QB and HS coach there as well.
