Assuming the Huskies advance tonight, they now know the team that stands between them and Madison Square Garden: Utah, which just pounded High Points, 77-64.
The game was close early, with the Utes leading only 32-28 at half. But they took full control in the seocnd half.
They have good size underneath and look like they could pose a real test for the Huskies.
They are led by a pair of big men, 7-foot-1 junior center Luke Nevill (15.8 ppg, 7.7 rpg last season) and 6-8 forward Shaun Green (11.1 pg, 6.1 rpg). Tonight Johnnie Bryant came off the bench for 10 points.
Assuming the Huskies get past New Jersey Tech tonight, UW and Utah will play at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday on ESPN2, with the winner going on to the NIT semifinals next week in New York.

As always, you're welcome to join in with your thoughts, although that's tougher tonight, since this game isn't televised.
