Once again I must say that I love this University of Washington Husky Basketball squad. They gutted out another win on Saturday, this time over arch rival Washington State, who most definitely Coug’d it after blowing a thirteen point lead with twelve minutes left. With the Cal Golden Bears losing to the Colorado Buffaloes yesterday, UW took over sole possession of first place in the Pac-12. Not bad for a team with nine freshman.
Sportswriter Jim Moore, a Washington State Alum, said it best:
“When you’re a Coug, losses to the Huskies are the worst. And when they happen the way they did Saturday, it’s even worse than worst, whatever that word is. I say this because we led by 13 points with 12 minutes to go. When you lose that kind of lead with that much time left, it gives Husky fans the chance to tell us that we “Couged it” again. I’d rather get blown out than lose like we did on Saturday.”
Awesome. GO HUSKIES!
