Pac-12 conference play had been clean sailing for the UW Huskies men’s basketball workforce – correct up until finally final week.
Initially, senior forward Noah Dickerson experienced an ankle injury that manufactured him day-to-day heading into maybe the toughest highway excursion of the time in Arizona. And whilst the Huskies manufactured it out of Tucson with a 67-60 win over the Wildcats on Feb. 7, Arizona State handed the Dawgs (10-1 Pac-12) their very first league decline two days later on.
Now the Huskies are heading throughout the point out to get on rival WSU (3-8 Pac-12), and even though Washington defeated the Cougars 85-67 in Seattle final month, WSU now has star Robert Franks back again from injury and is coming off an amazing sweep of the Arizona schools final week.
“Robert Franks is a tough (participant). He was not participating in the final time we performed them so now we gotta come with a totally various gameplan,” Dickerson told 710 ESPN Seattle’s Danny, Dave and Moore on Thursday. “But we play our protection and do what we do, I think we’ll be good.”
Dickerson is averaging 12.8 details and 6.7 rebounds for each game this time, and despite his ankle difficulty was ready to place up 18 details on 5 for 7 taking pictures and 8 rebounds in the decline to Arizona State. So how is his ankle holding up?
“I’m undertaking a whole lot of rehab, but it is finding there, finding back again to 100 per cent,” he claimed. “It’s just a very little bump in the highway, we’ll be good.”
As is customary on Danny, Dave and Moore, Dickerson’s interview included a wide vary of topics, which includes his twin brother, his husky doggy Sosa, and tailoring his game right after Shaquille O’Neal.
