It might seem hard at first to take much away from a 118-64 blowout of McNeese State that saw the Huskies score the third-most points in team history.
Obviously, McNeese State was just overmatched and simply never found answers to stop the Huskies for any sustained period of time.
That said, UW center Matthew Bryan-Amaning’s fastbreak reverse dunk with 6:47 left in the game that put the Huskies in triple digits and gave him his career-high 28th point was probably the play that speaks most loudly from this outcome.
He almost looked like a new player out there: aggressive on the block and filling the lanes in transition.
Amaning finished with 13 rebounds to go with this career-high scoring while Isaiah Thomas supported him with 17 points. The inside-outside combo is just the type of thing that UW needs this season to be successful and if nothing else it’s encouraging to see MBA play with such vigor.
