The Washington Huskies will play their second game of the week at Alaska Airlines Arena, with a three-game slate on tap this week.
The game will be televised on the Pac-12 Networks, and the Huskies will look to play much better after their sloppy performance the other night.

Eastern Washington is currently 4-2 on the season, and recently won 87-82 against Belmont at home, while converting their last 10 free throws in the final 4:30 seconds of the game.
