Huskies Advance to Championship Series

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. - For the second time in the 2009 postseason, the Washington Huskies were pushed to a deciding game and faced elimination much earlier than they had hoped for. And for the second time they persevered and prevailed.

Just hours after dropping a heartbreaking 9-8 decision to Georgia in nine innings, the Huskies bounced back Sunday night to send the Bulldogs home with a 9-3 victory at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium, sending the Huskies into the best-of-three championship series for the first time in school history.

The Huskies (49-12), who advanced to the championship game in 1996 and '99 when it was just a single game, will face No. 1 overall seed Florida, which eliminated Alabama, 5-4, on a walk-off grand slam. Both teams are looking for their first National Championship.
