The Huskies look to shake off a brutal 82-57 defeat at the hands of the Oregon Ducks on Thursday and are taking the time-tested approach to a bad loss - by flushing that memory down the toilet. The team would normally break down tape and point out mistakes and missed opportunities, but not this week.
Said Husky coach Lorenzo Romar, earlier this week, "It's over. Let's move on. We got to move on. At this point we have to make sure our guys understand we're tied for first place with six games to go. This game didn't mean that we're in last place. The sky is not falling. We're still tied for first place. Let's move on and finish the right way. That's what we're trying to get across to our team."
With Cal's victory last night, the Huskies are no longer first in the conference, and now firmly sit in 2nd place, but can move back into a tie for first with a win this afternoon. Here's a quick look at the game:
