Washington is arguably the most talented team in the Pac-12 Conference, with two future NBA players on the roster in freshman guard Tony Wroten Jr. and sophomore guard Terrence Ross.
Still there are questions about the team's chemistry and frontcourt depth.
Washington uses a seven-man rotation and must avoid injuries. The Huskies are also in need of leadership, although Wroten has taken control of the scoring lately. It will be interesting to see if Washington becomes a one-man show featuring Wroten or if an ensemble cast emerges that includes Ross, Abdul Gaddy and C.J. Wilcox.
"We have the potential to be a good team. We've shown that. Now it's a matter of consistency. Are we going to do what it takes each day in practice to get better? Are we going to improve throughout the season and commit to defense? ... Time will tell." — Coach Lorenzo Romar
History will repeat itself. Washington recovers from a wobbly start, rolls off a long winning streak, stumbles on the road and makes a strong showing in the Pac-12 tournament. The Huskies advance to a school-record fourth NCAA tournament and bow out in the second round.
