Huskies Lose Big to Colorado In Ugly Road Showing 87-69


Huskies came out electric and fired up, they went 7-0 early against Colorado and quickly there after 14-5. However, from then on it was all the Buffalos and the Huskies were unable to play defense, unable to play offense, and just fell apart.

The Huskies went into the half down by 10 points but Colorado led by about 20 for most of the second half. There were no signs of life from UW, they weren’t guarding Colorado’s 3 point shooters, weren’t able to hit their own, couldn’t make free-throws, couldn’t convert lay-ups, and had many ugly turnovers. It was just another rough AWAY loss for the Huskies and Lorenzo Romar.

Here are some game notes and thoughts:

  • Tony Wroten still looks to be the only one willing to step up and lead this team. When he is playing hot, the team seems to be playing hot (especially on the offensive end of the court). He had 21 points, 7 steals, 6 rebounds, and 4 turnovers.
  • CJ Wilcox was cold throughout the entire game. He ended with 19 points but on 6-16 from the field and 3-9 from 3pt land. It was a rough night for Wilcox.
  • Terrence Ross still seems to be up and down throughout the whole game, he is able to do impressive things but is not always around when needed. He picked up 4 fouls and had to sit on the bench for a little bit of the game. He ended with 13 points.
  • Aziz N’Diaye was completely ineffective, Colorado doesn’t have a true center and yet N’Diaye only had 2 points and 2 rebounds, that is unacceptable against this Buffalo team.
  • The freshman (aside from Wroten) did not look good in this game. Bruenig was blocked a couple times, missed a layup, and was just getting pushed around inside. Shawn Kemp Jr. was in the game but wasn’t effective in the game. His 2 points came on free-throws.
  • Darnell Gant looked lost out there, for being the only senior (aside from Sherrer) an 0-5 day, 4 rebounds, and 2 turnovers is a terrible day.
  • This team does not look poised to make an at-large bid in the NCAA tournament. This just isn’t going to happen unless something changes, and changes quick. A win in the Pac-12 tournament may be the only way UW sees the NCAA tournament.
  • A game against Utah in 2 days should help them get past some of these road woes. UW is now 8-6 and 2-1 in Pac-12 play.
