The Huskies, increasingly looking like a team capable of winning a title, throttled No. 2 seed Northwestern 9-0 in five innings, gaining themselves a day off today and a favorite's tag to win a spot in the best-of-three championship series starting Monday.
While the Huskies still have a way to go to win the national title, they can declare themselves the champions of Chicago after dispatching both DePaul, and Northwestern on succesive days. By winning the first two days the Huskies earned themselves a day off before playing either ASU, DePaul, or Arizona at 10:00 AM on Sunday. A win on Sunday will propel the Huskies into the championship round which begins on Monday.
