The Cats come up short against the Huskies, lose 79-70
This was a key game for the Cats since they had to return the favor to the Huskies for the White-Out game in Tucson. Sadly, things didn't work out that way. I've always thought that for many years, the Huskies had one of the most (if not the most) athletic basketball squads in the Pac 12. It's just that Lorenzo Romar never coached them to their fullest potential. Well this time around, the Huskies did out-muscle the Cats as this game had no down to the wire finish. The lack of depth showed for Arizona as they looked tired and just a step behind Washington. Arizona would hang around in the first half as they trailed only 39-37 at halftime. However, star frosh Tony Wroten would show why he'll win Pac 12 Freshmen of the Year instead of Nick Johnson as he led the Huskies on a run that the Wildcats would ultimately fail to answer.
