Back court returners
Washington returns a handful of guards with experience. Junior David Crisp started alongside Fultz in the backcourt last year. Although Crisp struggled at times with less-than-consistent shooting and issues with turnovers, his value lies in his veteran leadership. He remains as one of UW’s better sharpshooters, sinking 77 three-point shots last year.
But perhaps his greatest play so far as a Washington Husky never happened on the basketball court:
Husky fans will never forget his commitment.
Junior guard Matisse Thybulle was a regular member of the starting five last year as well. The lengthy 6’5″ wing did most of his damage on the defensive end, forcing turnovers and getting out in transition. He averaged over two steals per game in 2016-17 and was also efficient offensively, shooting 45 percent.
