Wow, just like the old days. Bodies flying up and down the court, shots swishing through the nets, crowd roaring. Lots o' fun at Hed Ed tonight.
Obviously, the Ducks are dictating the tempo, because this game is nothing like the Huskies' first three conference games. But the Dawgs are keeping up just fine.
Despite the fast pace, it's the big guys battling for scoring honors: Jon Brockman and Maarty Leunen with 13 each.
Also encouraging -- beyond what shows up on the stats sheet -- is the play of UW freshmen Mathew Bryan-Amaning and Venoy Overton. Both growing up quickly tonight, with MBA building on what he showed last weekend at USC, and with Overton apparently feeling comfortable in his match with Oregon's quick but small Tajuan Porter.
Never miss a local story.
A reminder, it's on FSN, and it's hard to imagine there much on TV tonight as much fun as this one has been.
I'll be back after the game with notes, quotes and final thoughts.
