Is Battle the answer for Washington basketball?

Mike Hopkins challenged Washington basketball’s upperclassmen to step up after their loss to Cal on the road, and while they played a complete game in their dominant win over Oregon State, it was true freshman RaeQuan Battle who infused new life into the Husky offense.

Five-star freshman Jaden McDaniels didn’t play in the win, even though he suited up for the game, and Battle took his place in the starting lineup and was excellent. He finished with 11 points on the night, going 4-6 from the field including 3-5 from three-point range.
