UW / Arizona State Game Blog

The Huskies are off to a slow start against Arizona State trailing 19-10 with 9:38 to go in the first half. The early story is Washington simply isn't shooting, or handling the ball very well. The Huskies are only shooting 4-17 from the floor, and they are turning the ball over quite a bit.

27-19 with 6:00 left in the first. Brockman is not having a good game tonight. He is turning the ball over, traveling, forsing shots, and getting burned on defense. The Huskies are staying close enough to make a run. One more note....I don't think I have ever seen a worse foul shooting team....they just throw it up there with little if any consistent form. Isn't that coaching?

The Huskies ratchet up the defense in the final minutes and get back into the game as the second half closes trailing 32-26.

The second half opens with both teams trading shots as both teams shoot better in the second stanza. 40-34 ASU with 17:23 left in the game. 12:00 left in the game and the Sun Devil lead has been fluctuating between 6-11 points. Washington is still turning the ball over too much and not shooting very well. ASU on top 50-39.

ASU ran the lead up to 17 points, but the Huskies have come back. 7:33 left as Tim Morris fouls out of the game in his final home appearance as a Husky. The Huskies are making a serious run at the Sun Devils trailing 59-51. The key like the end of the first half is UW has stepped up the pressure. UW is still missing to many shots from the field.
