Second-half turnovers doom Washington

Washington scored enough points Thursday night to beat UCLA, especially at home with a late-arriving crowd of 6,894 at Alaska Airlines Arena ready to explode. The Huskies gave the enthusiastic crowd reasons to cheer during an entertaining first half, in which both teams shot better than 48 percent from the field. Washington led 45-41 at the break, but its porous defense was an ominous sign. The defense got progressively worse in the second half and the Huskies didn't make things easy on themsel

Adams' career-high 31 too much for Washington, Bruins win 91-82...

Pretty pictures within! The game was entertaining for fans for 36 minutes. It was high-scoring, both teams were hitting big shots and it was tight. Neither the Washington Huskies nor the UCLA Bruins could grab a firm hold on the lead. The lead actually changed hands more than 20 times throughout the course of the game. UCLA proved why it belongs in the NCAA Tournament while Washington proved that it belongs fighting for a spot in the NIT, and the Bruins walked out of Hec Ed with a 91-82 victory.

Practice Spotlight - Day Two [$]

SEATTLE - On Thursday there was more talk about the passion, more talk about the details, the things that the current Washington players have said when asked to compare Chris Petersen’s new regime at Washington and the previous staff under current USC Head Coach Steve Sarkisian’s. And it’s not just coming from those that were seemingly left in the wind to twist.

UW spring practice notes: Young quarterbacks settle in

The Huskies just wrapped up their second practice of the spring season inside the Dempsey Indoor Center, another 2-hour, 15-minute workout. Like Tuesday, players were in helmets only, no pads, and save for the three 11-on-11 team drills, much of the morning was spent on positional teaching drills in a quiet setting. Music played less than half the time, and only for team drills. Some news, notes and observations: Junior linebacker Shaq Thompson participated in one drill with the running backs,

Morning links: Andrew Andrews, Huskies streaking at right time...

When asked last week if benching Andrew Andrews in the second half of the Stanford game was the impetus to his turnaround, coach Lorenzo Romar said: “I don’t know about that. I think more than anything – and not just him – but guys have become more comfortable with their roles.” That's probably true. But something clicked for Andrews after five scoreless minutes against Stanford. Before that game he was mired in shooting/scoring slump that included a 1-for-12 outing at Utah followed by a 3-for-
