I've arrived at Hec Ed, and there is a sign outside saying that this game is sold out.
Part of that, I'm sure, is the Huskies' recent run of success and the importance/attractiveness of this game.
Another part, I'm also sure, is the pregame tribute to Brandon Roy, perhaps the best and certainly one of the most popular Huskies of them all.
(For those of you who know Hec Ed, the familiar purple and gold Bob Hougregs banner hanging from the rafters has been replaced with a larger-than-life jersey showing his name and his No. 25. It's just my hunch a companion No. 3 jersey is about to join it.)
The game will be broadcast on FSN at 8 p.m.
