UW vs Kansas - Upset Alert

Recommended Posts

UW is up 60-52 with 7:52 left in the 2nd half.  Game is in Kansas City, MO.  Would be a great win for the new regime and the conference as a whole.

3:01 left 69-59 UW wtih UW at the line shooting 2.   Before tip-off I would have thought Kansas would have just as good a chance at beating UW in football as UW would beating Kansas in basketball.  KU was a 21.5 point favorite.

very impressive. i caught the last 15 minutes. huskies were up 8, then kansas roared back and made it a 1-pt game with about 9 minutes left. i figured that was that, the crowd was into it now.

but washington extended the lead back out to (eventually) 13. great defensive effort, and some huge made shots down the stretch.

Awesome win. They never played scared, played not to lose etc. They pretty much stuck to the 2/3 zone all game and limited KU's threes. I'm very excited about Hopkins. Romar hadn't gotten it done for five yrs., and even when he did in the 2000s, they got by way too much on rat ball and athleticism.

UW looked like a completely different team compared with the Romar era: organized zone defense, clear offensive structure, careful with the ball, taking smart shots. Amazing.
