Another game, another sweep of an inferior Pac-12 foe. This time, the Buffaloes met their maker, as the Huskies’ defense was overwhelming in a 64-55 victory.
Matisse Thybulle was once again the catalyst, with 17 points, 6 steals, 5 blocks, and 3 boards. Nowell and Crisp also finished with double-digit points.
In the end, the Huskies forced 19 turnovers and limited the Buffs to 41.5% shooting (only 30.8% from three). Colorado was able to sort of hang around, but the Huskies stretched their lead out heading into halftime, and just after the break. Suspect shooting from the Dawgs ultimately kept this game closer than it needed to be, but in the end it was a comfortable victory never REALLY in doubt.
Final road trip of the regular season, to the Bay Area schools this week. A chance to complete two more season sweeps before the final homestand against the Oregon schools. Then, the fun beings in earnest.
