Washington obviously didn't want it as much as Valparaiso last night and the season comes to a stunning end. It might have been Washington's first game in the inaugural College Basketball Invitational, but it turned out like so many others the Huskies have played this year as UW self-destructed down the stretch, allowing Valparaiso to pull a 72-71 upset. UW missed its last eight shots from the field and didn't score in the final 3:10.
Lorenzo Romar and his squad need to go back to the drawing board in the off season because things simply aren't working very well right now for the Washington basketball program. No excuse to lose at home to an undermanned opponent to end the season.
