The Huskies showed they have what it takes to win on the road versus Arizona State. The team did not get off to a hot start offensively only coming up with 22 points in the first half. However, they also limited the Sun Devils to a mere 24 points.
The Huskies hole was not as big as other road games they have played in this year. This one they were able to dig out of, with the help of freshman star Tony Wroten.
Wroten had a game high of 22 points and his biggest basket of the night came on a dunk. This dunk found its way onto ESPN Sportcenter’s top plays and became the number one play of the day.
He was just unstoppable in the second half. He turned up his game and Arizona State had no answer for him.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins also scored his first points of the season in the game. He had two baskets for four points and he also brought down five rebounds. Romar showed more confidence in him as he was off the bench only a few minutes into the game. His game is physical and it shows as he once again fouled out of the game. He is now 2-2 in games played and games fouled out.
However, while being only 6’6 he has shown that he is a consistent option down low in the post. Especially in rebounding and defending. Yet there is more to be desired in terms of offensive ability.
CJ Wilcox came back from injury in this game but wasn’t able to shake off the rust, he was 0-3 from the field and his only points came on two different trips to the free throw line. He went 4-4 from the stripe.
Terrence Ross was around but wasn’t finding his shot early. He ended with 12 points but on 4-13 from the field and 0-4 from three. Not a great night for him but he still found a way to contribute and help his team get the win.
All-in-all, the Huskies found a big conference win on the road but now they face another test in Arizona on Saturday. A hot start on the road is the next thing for UW to try and conquer.
