I assume it didn't look any better on TV, but all thoughts -- good and bad -- are welcome.
I'll click in later with some stats, quotes and thoughts.
Although those may come a little later than usual, as I'm making this a double-header, heading up to Tempe this afternoon for the WSU-ASU game.
I've arrived (WSU 26, ASU 18).
Never miss a local story.
I'll try to respond to some of your notes later. However -- for Romar, at least -- the big issue was he didn't think his Huskies competed hard.
Meanwhile, some notes:
Star of the game: In his third career start, Arizona freshman forward Jordan Hill led all scorers with 16 points and added eight rebounds and five blocked shots.
Husky of the game: For the first time in his career, sophomore center Artem Wallace led his team with 12 points, on six-for-six shooting, with two rebounds and a steal. Coach Lorenzo Romar singled him out for his effort.
Key stats: Arizona shot 57.4 percent from the field, while Washington shot 38.1 percent. The Huskies hit only three of 20 three-point attempts (15 percent). … Arizona outrebounded Washington, 42-25.
Key run: Midway through the first half, the Wildcats went on an 11-0 run that gave them a 37-20 lead the Huskies never threatened. The run began with Jawann McClellan draining three straight free throws after being fouled on a three-point shot by Jon Brockman.
Observations: Washington trailed 45-26 at halftime, their largest halftime deficit of the season. … The 30-point loss represents their biggest loss since losing 89-57 at Arizona State on Jan. 9, 2003. … Washington was outrebounded for the second time this season – both road losses.
Quotable: "The guys that we targeted to stop, I think we did a good job. (Ryan) Appleby is a good three-point shooter, and he had a hard time getting looks. The inside game with (Spencer) Hawes and (Jon) Brockman, I thought overall we did a good job of bringing in the double when we needed it." – Arizona coach Lute Olson.
Next: 7:30 p.m. Thursday, California, Hec Edmundson Pavilion.
