SEATTLE - For the first time during the season, Washington will recognize a Husky Legend during the UW-Washington State game. Coaching legend Marv Harshman will be honored as this week's legend and will be recognized during the first half of the game.
Harshman, who is 94 years old, was the Huskies coach from 1972-1985 and compiled a 246-146 (.628) record at Washington. The second-most winning coach in UW history also was the head coach at Washington State where he went 155-181 from 1959 to 1971. He combined for 642 coaching victories at UW, WSU and Pacific Lutheran University and is a member of the National Basketball Hall of Fame.
Harshman led the Huskies to two regular season Pac-12 titles, three NCAA tournament trips and the NCAA Sweet 16 in 1985.
