In regards to Wroten it was a pretty small sample size with only 30 games and 15 starts. His shooting percentages were horrible at 40% and 26%. Not sustainable....... Never in my life have a seen a guy so highly touted that could shoot anything other than layups.

Even layups were a struggle. The guy must have averaged six offensive rebounds a game volleyballing his own misses!

Speaking of Wroten how does a guy who was able to score 16.9 Points per game with 5.2 Assists per game as a 21 year old get bumped out of the League by the time he is 23. I admit that I don't follow the NBA at all anymore but that seems odd to me.


Wroten had absolutely no business leaving after year 1, he couldn't shoot at all. He was just quicker & more athletic than the bums he faced every game in the Pac-12. Markelle Fultz is the same player who will meet the same fate very soon. Spencer Hawes was another who was dumb enough to leave school way too early. Sure hope Jaylen Nowell has enough sense to stay for his Junior year, he isn't ready for big minutes in the NBA either.

I was always baffled at how little Romar got with so much talent. It leaves you to wonder if guys like Hawes and Wrotten left because they figured they wouldn't get developed at U of W practices since the coach just rolled the ball and said "run around and jump high!"?

14-4 in conference and 23-8 over all before the tourney. Am I a victim of irrational exuberance?

Well I still only have one wrong but looks like I over thought it. Should have just went with undefeated. :)

Last week had them versus Nebraska. Time will tell.

That would be sweet to face off against his old team and his mentor, Jim Boeheim.

Wonder what Mitchy the Kid, formerly the morning KJR host, is doing? :oops: :oops: :oops: He was always all about Syracuse.

Just found him on Twitter, called "Mitch Unfiltered".

Wow, nobody will hire Mitch after his transgressions. Can't believe someone would risk their career and family life for that. Doesn't he know what his right hand and the internet is for. lol

P12 title wrapped up???

The Huskies have won their last 10. Even if they were to lose three of their next 10, nobody else is good enough — nobody is even close to good enough — to win out.

Share story
The Hotline extends its congratulations to the Washington Huskies for winning the 2018-19 regular-season title and securing the No. 1 seed in Las Vegas. It was a terrific, consistent, dominating performance by coach Mike Hopkins and his team — one of the best we’ve witnessed in years.

But the conference season isn’t half over, you say?


Well, the race itself is completely over, we say.

It came to an early end in the past 48 hours, when a combination of result pushed UW into a three-game lead over its closest ‘competition.’ The current standings:

Washington: 8-0
Arizona State: 6-3
Oregon State: 5-3
UCLA: 5-3
USC: 5-3
Utah: 5-3
Others: who cares-doesn’t matter

The Huskies have won their last 10. Even if they were to lose three of their next 10, nobody else is good enough — nobody is even close to good enough — to win out. (Frankly, nobody else is good enough to only lose once.)

Now look at those standings again while assuming four losses for each team in the pack.

Like I said, it’s over.

Which got the Hotline pondering: What’s the most dominant regular season in conference history?

I went as far back as 1978, the start of the 10-team conference. Prior to that, it was UCLA and the seven afterthoughts.

ADVERTISING


In the past four decades, plenty of teams have won the regular-season title by three games, with Arizona ’15 as the last to do it.

No team has won the conference by four games.

But three teams have won it by five games:

• Arizona ’88, which went 17-1 and reached the Final Four with Sean Elliott and Steve Kerr.

• Arizona ’93, which was also 17-1 but lost in the first round to a guy named Nash.

• Stanford ’04, which went 17-0, then lost the regular-season finale at Washington, then lost in the second round to Alabama.


These Huskies could go 17-1. More likely, they’ll finish 16-2 or 15-3 and still win the title handily because the conference is bad.

It’s much worse than it was 15 years ago, when Stanford blitzed through with one loss.

To provide perspective on the colossal disparity in talent then-and-now, consider:

Arizona ’93 won the conference by five games over teams that had Ed O’Bannon and Jason Kidd.

Stanford ’04 finished five games clear of a Washington team with Nate Robinson and Brandon Roy and six games clear of an Arizona team with Andre Iguodala and Channing Frye.

Don’t see any players like that on the rosters chasing these Huskies.
