Huskies Defeat Ducks, 86-72


Hard to analyze something I couldn’t see, but happy to report that the Huskies defeated Oregon tonight, 86-72, behind a career-high 34 points from Quincy Pondexter.

The Dawgs trailed by one at the half, but took over in the second, on a night when every Husky big man had at least three fouls.

Matthew Bryan-Amaning just missed his second straight double-double, finishing with eight points, ten rebounds. Isaiah Thomas had 14 points and Justin Holiday had 10.

Parting thoughts:

Really? In this day and age, we can’t get a late-season, key matchup on television? Unacceptable.

Sounds like Quincy played his way back into the Player of the Year discussion, huh?

The Dawgs need three more wins to dance, and then I believe we’re in a VERY good spot. Win at Oregon State, beat our first round opponent, beat ASU (or the team that beats ASU) in the second round, and WE ARE IN. That’s how I see it.

14-point victory aside, I don’t want Oregon in the first round. In fact, if you’re asking, I’d like to see Stanford.

I don’t want the season to end. I know we’re probably not going to be national champions, but each year is such a fun ride. Really hoping the Dawgs keep winning so we get to keep watching.

Thanks for coming!
