Here's what UW coach Lorenzo Romar had to say about UW's Thursday rematch against Oregon:
"I remember (in the first game) they were very, very good. We just had a difficult time containing their guards. I remember us turning the ball over, in about a two- or three-minute span, about six times in the first half. And from that point on, they never looked back."
Here's a quick scouting report:
