Huskies Pistolwhip Ducks, Keep NCAA Tourney Hopes Alive

UW went down to Eugene on Thursday and took care of the Ducks 86-72. The Huskies won their third straight road game and kept their chances at an at-large NCAA Tournament bid alive.

Quincy Pondexter was unstoppable – the lone senior on the team scored 34 points on 14/18 shooting, grabbed 10 rebounds, and handed out 6 assists on his way to another Player of the Year-type performance.

Pondexter drives to the basket while Malcolm Armstead (#11) does his best Shimmy Shimmy Cocoa Pop.

While the Huskies are on the cusp of making the Big Dance, the Ducks are squatting in the underground parking garage of the Pac-10.

Maybe Oregon should consider being more like their football brethren and start breaking the fuck out of some laws. The football team is racking up charges like Bobby Brown circa 2003 while the B-ball team has yet to garner even one DUI or domestic violence charge this season. Very disappointing.

The Ducks need to dig deep and conjure up last year’s pellet gun incident if they expect to have any success in next week’s Pac-10 tournament. That incident, summed up by the headline, “Ducks caught shooting ducks in Eugene” has TheDawgDude choking on a flemball of irony.

Duck-on-duck crime is no joke, fellas.

More importantly, this win keeps the Huskies with a shot of making the NCAA Tournament even if they don’t get the automatic bid by winning the Pac-10 tournament.

UW finally made an appearance in ESPN analyst Joe Lunardi’s projected NCAA tourney, albeit as one of the teams to just barely miss the tournament. But with a win tonight against Oregon St. and a few wins in the Pac-10 tourney, the Huskies should have a good chance at grabbing an at-large bid.

I don’t care what anyone says – Lunardi is the best fat lesbian college basketball analyst out there.

The only problem with Thursday’s win over Oregon was the fact that Fox Sports Northwest inexplicably decided not to broadcast the game. On the other hand, I didn’t have to shield my eyes from this swamp thing for two hours:

And before you say, “She’s had two kids, way to be a misogynistic jerk!”, let me say that yes, I do feel bad. That I couldn’t find a more accurately hellacious photo of Mrs. Mentink. I’m sorry, but she’s too masculine for me. I like my sportscasters good and effeminate. Like Bob Costas:

Costas runs on watermelon lip gloss and Luna Bars.

FSN is scheduled to televise tonight’s game against the Beavers at 5pm. And no, Costas won’t be there, so at least you won’t have to worry about hiding your B-Cost inspired erection from your buddies.
