A Close One

Washington opened the season last night with an exhibition against SPU. The Falcons showed why they are one of the best programs in Division II by giving the Huskies all they could handle. Local sharp shooter Rob Diedrich's lit up the Huskies from the outside last night for 36, and Washington turned the ball over twenty plus times.

One bright spot was the play of freshman Venoy Overton who finished with 16 points, 4 assists, and five rebounds. Added to those impressive totals were four turnovers which I wouldn't be immediately concerned about from a frosh point guard playing his first game.

Do the Huskies miss Ryan Appleby? They really do because he is the one sure guy they have that can light it up from outside even though he isn't very quick when it comes to defense.

One thing for sure after this one the Huskies need to play much better defense, and handle the ball better if they want to go to the tournament this year.
