Counting down “The 25 Days of Husky Christmas”…..
“DubLife” is doing its second season of the annual Holiday countdown to Christmas highlighting special moments and statistics in Husky Athletics history. Our segment is meant to bring positive thoughts of our favorite university during a time of the year where thanks and reflection is at the forefront of our minds.
17 DAYS ‘TIL CHRISTMAS
The number 17 represents the number of appearances the Washington Men’s Basketball program has made in the NCAA Tournament.
Overall, the Huskies record while competing in the NCAA Tournament is 19-18 with their first appearance back in 1943.
Last season, the Huskies ended a drought which saw them make the tournament for the first time since the 2011 season.
Eventually, Washington’s run in the 2019 NCAA Tournament would end in the round of 32 with a 78-61 defeat to #3 North Carolina.
Third year Washington head coach Mike Hopkins is expected to lead his team to a deeper run in the NCAA Tournament this season.
