    So, ~1-1/2 hours after the men are finished today, the Women Buffs look to keep the momentum going, tipping off against the Huskies at the Keg at ~5:30 this evening.

    cubuffs.com preview of the game- http://www.cubuffs.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=600&ATCLID=209890999 .

    A little bit about Washington from the preview:

    Washington, receiving votes in both Associated Press and USA Today Sports Coaches’ polls, is 18-7 overall and in fifth place in the Pac-12 at 7-6. The Huskies lost at Utah 69-61 on Friday and have dropped three of their last five, however, one of those wins was an impressive 76-67 decision over No. 7 Oregon State, handing the league-leading Beavers their first Pac-12 loss of the season. Washington boasts the top scoring offense in the Pac-12 at 76.0 points per game. The Huskies shoot 43.2 percent from the field and a conference-best 77.1 percent from the free throw line. From beyond the arc, Washington ranks second in 3-pointers made (8.2 3mpg), hitting 35.4 percent. Defensively the Huskies allow 66.6 points per game on 39.0 percent from the field.

    Sophomore guard Kelsey Plum leads the Pac-12 and ranks eighth in the nation in scoring at 23.0 points per game. She also tops the Pac-12 in free throw accuracy at 89.7 percent. Senior guard Jazmine Davis leads Washington in assists (4.3 apg) and steals (1.8 spg) while ranking second in scoring (15.4 ppg).

    Having no true PG really really hurts us. I was looking at our roster, and I think as long as we have a good PG on board, this team can actually make some noises next year. Hopefully one of the incoming freshman could play.

    Well that was disheartening. They Buffs struggled at both ends of the court the first 10 minutes and guaranteed they would then have a tough time catching up to a very confident UDub team. It didn't help having Jen Reese and Jamee Swan start the game on the bench. Swan didn't get in the game until about six minutes in. At that point the Buffs were in massive catch-up mode.

    After the way the Buffs played in Seattle is would seem they would have had a shot at the Huskies, but boy they played like they weren't ready at either end - at least at the start of the game.

    That was the same starting line-up Lappe used Friday. Said on the radio she started the players that earned the start, the ones who wanted it.

    If Kennedy Leonard is everything she is supposed to be and stays healthy, we will have a true point guard next season.

    I just wish the young lady from Kansas City had stayed. She would be starting.
