UW who started the season with 11 straight wins, fell apart with four 4-game losing streaks in the latter half of the season.
This game seemed to encapsulate the season, as the Huskies eviscerated the Cardinal in the second half with sizzling shooting. However, UW put themselves behind the 8-ball early with uninspired play. The UW bench added little to production and the team was out-rebounded pretty much throughout the game.
Stanford will advance in the PAC-12 tournament and the Huskies will look to rebound in the 2015-16 season.
The Huskies were on fire from 3 point land. They hit 13-20 (65%).
Andrew Andrews was on fire offensively with 22 points.
What didn’t work
The Cardinal out-rebounded the Huskies 35-26. The interior game of the Huskies was sorely lacking.
Clutch defense again failed the Huskies in yet another close game.
SSU Players of the week
Nigel Williams-Goss: 16 Pts, 6 Reb, 7 Ast, 1 Stl
NOTE: Shawn Kemp Jr, did see action, suiting up for his final game as a Husky, scoring 6 points and 1 block.
UW will hope for an NIT or CBA tournament bid. It is uncertain if they will receive an invite.
