Washington basketball was pulled off a tough victory in overtime to remain undefeated
Offensively, Washington basketball fed Noah Dickerson in the post, who the Beavers had trouble stopping all night long. On defense, Matisse Thybulle continued to be a menace like he has been all year long. With 14 seconds left in overtime, he took the ball away from OSU that turned into a tie-up in favor of Washington. Dickerson made two free throws to put the Huskies ahead for
Dickerson and David Crisp were both keys in overtime. They both dropped 22 points, and Dickerson had seven of his points in overtime while Crisp hit a huge three with under a minute to play in OT. Jaylen Nowell was lights out as well, contributing another 18 points. Thybulle had nine points in the game but he also had two blocked shots and four steals in the game.
Tres Tinkle led the Beavers in scoring with 31 and grabbed 10 rebounds as well. Just like Dickerson for the Huskies, he was the key for the Beavers. Kylor Kelly contributed 16 points for Oregon State as well, but Noah Dickerson dominated him in the post.
Washington basketball now has one remaining game on the season at home on Saturday before the Pac-12 tournament and the NCAA tournament we all hope for. The Huskies take on the Oregon Ducks who have won their last three games.
This will be a huge game for both teams, as the Ducks will want to spoil senior day (like they did last year) for the Huskies, while the Dawgs want to go undefeated at home.
A special shoutout to the four seniors playing in their final game at Hec Ed on Saturday, David Crisp, Noah Dickerson, Matisse Thybulle and Dominic Green. They stuck around through a coaching change, and its paid off for them in a major way.
