The Huskies were defeated by the Texas Tech Red Raiders, 99-92, in overtime tonight at United Spirit Arena, falling to 5-1 for the season.

The least you should know:

This was the most exciting non-tournament game that the Huskies have played since last year’s 3-OT thriller against Cal. The Dawgs received new life after a last-minute game-winning three-pointer by Texas Tech at the end of regulation was ruled to have left the shooter’s hand fractions of a second after the buzzer.

These two teams might not have known much about each other coming into the game, but a little shoving, three techincals, and plenty of trash-talking later, there was no love in the air by the time it was done.

Quincy Pondexter put up a career-high 31 points and looks to be solidifying his place as a front-runner for Pac-10 Player of the Year.
