SEATTLE (AP) - Washington picked the wrong time to go into a slide.
Losing three straight at any point of the Pac-12 Conference season is concerning. This skid by the Huskies (12-8, 4-3 Pac-12) could be even more damaging because of the schedule that lies ahead, beginning on Thursday night when they host No. 8 Arizona.
It would be one thing if Washington's nosedive came against the elite of the Pac-12. But the first two setbacks of the Huskies' three-game losing streak came against Utah and Oregon State, neither of which had a conference victory before beating Washington.
And while the Huskies played well before falling at No. 10 Oregon last Saturday, the slide leaves them little room for error going forward if they want to stay in the conference race.
