Here’s my game story.
The Huskies finished non-conference play 9-3.
Isaiah Thomas had a carrer-high 27 points.
However, the Huskies were outrebounded for the first time this season, 39-37.
They open Pac-10 play at 3 p.m. Saturday at Washington State.
16:30/2nd: UW up, 45-46.
Elston Turner has returned to the UW bench on crutches. He has been disagnosed with a left ankle sprain. Probably no prognosis until after the game.
Halftime: Jon Brockman has 14 points but only one rebound. However, that rebound was the 1,000th of Brockman’s career.
He is 23 points away from becoming the first Husky ever to reach 1,500 career points and 1,000 career rebounds.
No word on Turner yet.
11:55 of the first half: Freshman Elston Turner has just been helped to the UW locker room with a left leg injury. He got tangled on the floor and Morgan State’s Rico Myles fell on his leg.
UW up, 20-15.
Tipoff: We’re about to get started.
Usual UW lineup taking the floor: Isaiah Thomas, Justin Dentmon, Quincy Pondexter, Jon Brockman and Darnell Gant.
7:05 No. 22 Kansas State just defeated the UW women, 73-60.
The UW men and Morgan State have just taken the court to warm up.
Tip is scheduled for 7:30.
5:45 p.m. The Kansas State women are leading the UW women, 31-28, at halftime of the first game of tonight’s doubleheader.
I’ll provide a final score when the game concludes.
Then we’ll go to normal gameday mode. I’ll click in with any pregame news, then provide some in-game updates and conclude with postgame notes and quotes.
Tipoff is set for 7:30, assuming the women don’t go into overtime. Both games are on FSN.
