Sluggish first half

Posted by Bob Condotta at 7:55 PM

The Huskies once again aren't doing a great job of showing they deserve their high ranking. Idaho scored only one basket in the last 9:15 of the first half and yet the Huskies still haven't put them away due to a ragged offensive showing.

The Huskies lead 38-29 at halftime but have bit just 14-42 shots and 5-16 from the 3-point line. Idaho stayed in it early by hitting its first four three-pointers but then went on a cold streak that allowed UW to pull away a little.

But this is three straight games in which UW has struggled early against subpar competition.
