Offense has been rare on both sides so far.
And exhibit A is USC's heralded freshman O.J. Mayo, who has one point on 0-for-6 shooting and 1-for-3 from the line.
However, that could be bad news for the Huskies, who trail by six despite the Trojans' leading scorer being an absolute non-factor, and perhaps a liability.
On the other hand, the Huskies have been notably better in the second half of their last two road games -- at LSU and at UCLA. If that happens again this could still get interesting, because they've hung in striking distance without looking particularly good.
Never miss a local story.
The problem is that UW is shooting 30 percent, USC 42 percent.
Leading scorer overall if USC forward Dwight Lewis with nine. Quincy Pondexter leaders UW with eight, including a couple of 3-pointers.
UW has control of the boards, 22-14.
