Huskies are as tough as anyone at home


There are two faces to the Husky basketball team, almost as diametrically opposed as the faces of Janus.

There is the Huskies’ road face, headed south, just like their postseason hopes. In eight road games – it is Valentine’s Day and UW has played just eight games away from home – the Huskies are 1-7. They average just 68 points a game and give up 82. They shoot 43 percent from the field, 32 percent from 3 and have been out-rebounded.

Then there is the Huskies’ home face, looking toward the stars. In Hec Ed, where UW is 15-1, the Huskies average 85 points a game, they yield 71 and they shoot almost 50 percent from the field. They out-rebound their opponents by almost 13 a game and hit nearly 40 percent of their 3-point attempts.

In other words they are tougher than heck at home.
