The Bottom Line

This Huskies team is skilled, though it seems to be that there are a few guys that carry the load on offense for them. Their leading scorer, Jaylen Nowell is a 40% three-point shooter, the best shooter on the team. Whatever defense the Bears play, they will need to keep an eye on him at all times. Given that Cal’s defense has been inconsistent, Washington will exploit Cal’s defensive mishaps. My prediction is that the Bears return from their Washington tour still winless in conference play.
