The Washington Huskies pulled in their 13th win of the PAC12 season with a 64-55 win over the Colorado Buffaloes on Saturday night. The comfortable win gives the Dawgs a 13-1 record in the PAC12 and they are now a lock for a share of the PAC12 regular season title. This is the 1st time the Huskies claimed a share of that title since the 2011-2012 season.
Matisse Thybulle continued his general thieving ways with 6 more steals and 5 blocked shots. He added 17 points showing that he is not a 1-dimensional player increasing his value in the NBA draft. Thybulle is second all-time on the PAC12 list, trailing only Gary Payton, with 301 career steals. Matisse is just 20 steals behind the Glove who had 321 steals at Oregon State.
Seriously. What 𝑐𝑎𝑛'𝑡 @MatisseThybulle do?!

“Apparently we accomplished getting a share of the PAC12 championship. That means nothing to us, we want to win it all,” Thybulle said. “We’re grateful for the opportunity we have in front of us, we’re grateful for where we are. We’re just looking at the next game.”
It wasn’t just the Matisse show, as he got help from Jaylon Nowell who scored 12 points and David Crisp who put in 10 of his own.
With 4 conference games left, the Huskies should wrap up the #1 seed in the Pac12 conference and be a lock for the NCAA tournament.
Last night was lit. @Coach_Hopkins took the opportunity during last night's postgame press conference to give a shoutout to the incredible sold out crowd and @UWDawgPack. #TougherTogether pic.twitter.com/EDYUlgVPzH
