UCLA 75 Washington 69: Go Stanford!

I wasted my time writing Thursday’s article. Washington is now in a position where they need to root for Stanford to beat California tomorrow night in Palo Alto or else they become co-champions of the Pac-12 but the #2 seed in the conference tournament due to Cal’s lone win over U-Dub in Seattle.

Darnell Gant was once again called upon to take the potential winning shot. He finished the game 1-7. This is eerily similar to their loss to Cal when Gant, 0-8 at the time, ended up taking the tying three-pointer and missing. I love Lorenzo Romar as a recruiter and his ability to get even his worst teams to play above expectations, but holy crap he’s just a god awful game manager in crunch time situations. I honestly cannot remember a single game where Washington was losing and won the game on the final possession.

This is a bad loss and it puts Washington back on the bubble. They need to win at least one game in the Pac-12 tournament, especially if Cal gets co-champion spot tomorrow, or else they’re going to the NIT.

So go Stanford! If Washington wants to make it hard for themselves, then they need an immediate bail out plan.
