Can this year's Huskies basketball team make it to their fourth NCAA tournament in a row? This question's answer can be found in my latest column up at SB Nation Seattle. While the losses of Isaiah Thomas, Matthew Bryan-Amaning and Justin Holiday have caused most experts to pick UCLA, Arizona and California to finish in front of the Huskies, I think they have the potential compete for a Pac-12 title — especially if Terrence Ross plays to his full potential this season.
"While the offense and rebounding figure to be strengths of this Washington team, their defense is worrying the coaching staff the most so far this season. The downside of welcoming in seven freshmen is their lack of defensive knowledge. N'Diaye's fouling tendencies will force inexperienced players like Jarreau and Kemp Jr. to play more than 15 minutes a game. Though they are both talented shot-blockers, it is likely they'll both go through growing pains especially when they start facing quality Pac-12 competition."

I make no claim to know what currently happens there.However...

Insider Steve remembers the 1997 Apple Cup between the Washington Huskies and the Washington State Cougars. For the longest time we Cougars have been the laughing stock, and the butt-end of Husky jokes. But on that November evening in 1997 as Ryan Leaf was being carried around on the shoulders of proud Cougars, something special happened.
Washington Huskies coach Steve Sarkisian says he'd pick Matt Barkley over Andrew Luck.
