This past week, the Huskies were playing basketball at a very high level. Washington went 3-0, beating two ranked teams, and their rival, Washington State. Strength of schedule isn’t a problem for this team going forward in the season.
NC SOS- 39
Tier 1- (4-3)
Tier 2- (1-2)
Tier 3- (4-1)
Tier 4- (8-0)
Washington has two quality wins by beating Kansas on the road and Arizona at home. Their non conference strength of schedule is standing at a nice number in 39. They have a chance for some more tier one and two wins down the stretch , and if they can pull them out, they could be seeded higher in the tournament.
The things that can’t be overlooked about this team are their losses and their schedule for the rest of the year. They have a bad loss in tier three to Stanford at home. They also have a losing record when facing tier two teams. From here on out, they aren’t scheduled to play a currently ranked team. Congrats Huskies on a great week.
