Eight Huskies played their final game in the NCAA Second Round at Creighton.
A UW win and a UCLA loss on Friday in the final Pac-12 game would give the title to the Huskies.
Washington dropped its first game in league play and first in 10 games.
It's wrong to say the Huskies have come from out of nowhere to the cusp of a surprising conference title, their first since 2000. They've come from everywhere. Six of UW's eight seniors are transfers.
