Strengths and Concerns

Strengths

  • Quality guard play - UW is very deep at the guard position. Allen, Conroy, and Robinson lead the team in almost every major statistical category.  They also provide leadership and emotion on and off the court.

  • Athleticism - The Huskies have extremely good athletes at every position; they are one of the most athletic teams in the conference.
     

  • Offense  - Second in scoring offense at 81.9 ppg and third in three point field goals made at 6.5 per game.
     

  • Turnover battle - Lead in the conference in turnover margin with a +2.45 mark.

 

Concerns

  • Experience - Only two players (Allen and Conroy) on the roster have two full seasons of Division I ball under their belt
     

  • Mediocre from the line - As a team shooting just .699 from the line

  • Perimeter defense - Ninth in the conference in scoring defense (80.2) and field goal percentage defense (.478).

Norz's Humble Prediction

Besides Stanford, the Huskies are the hottest team in the Pac-10.  They have won their last six of seven games including an emotional win against Oregon on Thursday.  UW will have a hard time focusing on Saturday which will give the Beavers an edge.  OOOOO SSSS UUUUUU -- in a close one.
