Big thanks to Todd for covering the game for me last night.
As if the world of college basketball – in Seattle or New York especially – was not starting to tune in to the fact that Wroten is a quickly emerging, tough-to-handle entity for the Huskies.
Brash and aggressive, the true freshman garnered his first start – and lit up a lively crowd, and NCAA tournament-tested UC-Santa Barbara, helping the Huskies snap their three-game skid with an 87-80 victory at Hec Edmundson Pavilion on Friday night.
Whether it was on difficult lean-in shots going at 7-foot-3 Greg Somogyi, or top-of-the-arc 3-pointers, Wroten was magnificent in scoring a career-high 27 points – and tying Isaiah Thomas’ single-game freshman scoring mark, set in 2008-09.
“He is quite a talent,” Romar said. “There isn’t a whole lot he can’t do out there on the floor.”The video above is from the inimitable QBSacker
