Fans saw a great sign of the future in the 2012 team.
Eight Huskies played their final game in the NCAA Second Round at Creighton.
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.
The match will air on the Pac-12 Networks at 7 p.m.
