The Washington Huskies have struggled to play consistently on both ends of the court this season and a blizzard has thrown their weekly routines out of whack. In what is a crucial conference game against the California Golden Bears, the Huskies have struggled thus far and trail 35-25 at the half. UW shot just 34.5% from the field in the first 20 minutes and only made one of their eight attempts from behind the arc. They were 4-for-8 from the free throw line.
Aziz N'Diaye led the way for Washington with eight points and four rebounds. Tony Wroten has six points, although he turned the ball over four times. Desmond Jennings and Abdul Gaddy both have three points each.
Cal received an unlikely contribution from little-used big man Robert Thurman, who had 12 points and four rebounds off the bench. Allen Crabbe added 10 points, while Justin Cobbs scored six in the half.
The second half is about to be underway. The Huskies desperately need to come back and win this home game if they hope to keep their NCAA Tournament hopes alive this season.
