david aka the TYZ will become famous soon enough
Congrats to him, he played great in two very important wins.

I know Tacko Fall really gave Washington fits last year, but outside of Central Florida, who in the conference has bigs that will take Washington out of his game? Any given night, he can own any team that is weak defensively inside.

Maybe Shaq Morris for WSU?

Graet job Washington.

Against Mississippi st. I couldn't believe they tried to play him man to man. They gave him he hook over his right shoulder and he made them pay.

Against UCLA he took his game to the perime T a bit more and torched them. It also opened up the middle for other guys which resulted in some offensive rebounding opportunities. He also looked better defensively.

If he is hitting his outside shot against Fall we will be fine. I really love his baby hook but when he runs into trouble is when hey double or triple him and he tries to force it. The last two games miss.st didn't double him and against UCLA he moved a bit more to the perimeter. Cumberland got in the lane much easier when Washington started hitting some outside shots. If we can get Cumberland to make some FT's we will be very strong offensively in our half court sets.

hopefully the spacing continues like that. it makes it easier on everybody on offense.

yes it does. When we guard and don't throw the ball away we are very very tough.

Interesting Evans was player of the week in the conference and Washington the national player of the week in this publication or whatever you want to call it. Both did have really good weeks.
