UW’s defense giving us fits

That good feeling after the AZ road trip is fading

    I think the Dawgs are the best team in the conference.  Need a great 2nd half and stop Crisps from those 3’s.  

    • They’re going to give a lot of teams fits. Their defense is really really good. Utah actually didn’t play that badly defensively themselves. It’s just that Washington took away what Utah does best (three-point shooting), and they simply couldn’t do anything against that zone. You must drive the ball to the basket to break down zone defense, and when you don’t, you’re going to struggle like Utah struggled tonight.
