What to know:
- Out of all Pac 10 teams, the Huskies scored the most (79) and gave up the least (69.6). Too bad that conference plays little D, as that defensive stat was good for 222nd in the country.
- Justin Dentmon accounts for 44 percent of the teams three point field goals. The next most proficient long distance shooter is Elston Turner, who plays only 13 minutes a game.
- They're 6-3 in games decided by five points or less.
- The Huskies are third in the nation in offensive rebounding, with 15 a game.
Projected performance: One and done. They have the personnel, but a second round match-up with Purdue is a tough draw.
