Free Picks: Service Plays for Thursday March 14
Re: Free Picks: Service Plays for Thursday March 14
This is clearly one of the least athletic and least capable squads for 11th year HC Romar at Washington. After winning 100 games the previous 4 years, the Huskies have failed to replace the contributions of Wroten and Ross from last season. They enter today at 18-14 SU after fending off arch rival Washington State last night. Oregon has already disposed of the Huskies twice yet remains highly motivated following their late season eggs vs. Mountain teams Utah and Colorado. There's no doubt they were out of sync in the absence of PG Artis for 10 games from late January to late February. But now that it's tourney time, Artis has been integrated back into the lineup and the Ducks RPI has fallen to a dangerous 54. I expect a huge game 1 effort from the well-rested Ducks as they prove why, with a healthy PG Artis, and the coaching of Altman, they are the best team in the PAC 12.
