Washington basketball returns home to face Oregon State

This week, Washington basketball takes on notoriously tough Oregon State, and 13th ranked Oregon. It should tell us a lot about the fight this Husky team has in them for the remainder of the season.

The Huskies are shooting 31.7 % from behind the three-point line on the season. When the threes aren’t falling, they need to find ways to get the ball inside. Isaiah Stewart can’t be the only source of offense in the paint, and the Huskies definitely have the athletes to play with more slashing in the offense.

After the California game, head coach Mike Hopkins challenged the three upperclassmen, juniors Nahziah Carter and Hameir Wright, and senior Sam Timmins to step up as leaders and on the floor.
