Final: Washington 82 , Idaho State 50

The Huskies took care of business in a game that could have found them a little distracted and sleepy.


They went 9-4 in nonconference play and begin Pac-10 competition Saturday, hosting Washington State.


Jon Brockman led the way again, with 21 points and 11 rebounds, both game highs. The Huskies also got nice place from their guards: Tim Morris, Venoy Overton and Justin Dentmon had 10 points each, and Ryan Appleby added nine.


Key stats: Washington dominated across the stats sheet. The Huskies hit 52 percent of their shots and limited the Bengals to 41 percent. UW

Countdown to tipoff: Idaho State at UW

The Idaho State Bengals are a significant step down from LSU’s Bayou Bengals. So Washington’s 3 p.m. game at Hec Ed should mostly just test the Huskies’ ability to deal with a tough travel schedule and keep their mind on business on this New Year’s Eve.


Meanwhile, normal gameday drill from here: I’ll pop in with any pregame notes, give a halftime update, and then return after the game with notes and quotes.


The game is on FSN, and for those of you who are choosing the Huskies over football, we’d be happy to hear your game

Final: UW 75, LSU 65

Big comeback for the Huskies, big win and big road win.


The turning point was an apparently pretty stinging halftime lecture by coach Lorenzo Romar. But it seemed to work as the Huskies opened the second half on a 12-0 run that chopped LSU’s lead to a more manageable, 41-39. Another 9-0 run a few minutes later sent the Huskies ahead to stay.


I thought the most interesting comment after the game came from senior Tim Morris, who said what the Huskies did today, they couldn’t have done at the start of the month in their 96-71

UCLA names coach: Rick Neuheisel

UCLA has just announced that Rick Neuheisel will be their new head football coach.


This will not only add interest to the Bruins’ visit to Husky Stadium next fall, but it also probably increases the chance the UCLA defensive coordinator may move to UW. Also that is no sure thing, as Neuheisel has said he would want to keep Walker, and even if Walker decides to move on, he might move on elsewhere.

Halftime: LSU 41, UW 27

The Huskies shooting has stayed cold, hitting 11 of 33 shots.


Meanwhile, LSU center Chris Johnson started hot and stayed hot, leading all scorers at half with 15 points.


Coming into the game, LSU was concerned about controling Jon Brockman, a far more muscular, powerful player than anything the Tigers have. However, they’ve kept him in control so far with eight points.


LSU also stressed its need to control the Huskies on the boards, and so far they’ve held their own, 19-19.


Turnovers are close — seven by UW, six by LSU — but the Tigers
