3 DAYS ‘TIL CHRISTMAS
The 2004-05 Washington Huskies Men’s Basketball team made history when they upset the #8 Arizona Wildcats 81-72 to claim their first Pac-10 Tournament title in program history.
Washington who ranked #14 in the nation, secured the win when Husky guard Nate Robinson scored six points, which were his only ones of the second half – in the final 1:07 minutes of the game.
“It feels great! We’re proud of the whole University of Washington because we did it for them,” Robinson said.
Washington outscored the Wildcats 19-4 over the final 5:12, after trailing by six points. The Huskies dominated the boards, 41-26, including a 17-8 offensive edge. All but two of Washington’s nine players grabbed rebounds, with Robinson getting five.
“No question the team that played the hardest won the ballgame,” Arizona coach Lute Olson said. “They’re one of the few teams that can send five people to the offensive boards and are quick enough to recover defensively.”
