8 DAYS ‘TIL CHRISTMAS
One of the most memorable games in Washington basketball history happened when the underdog 1974-75 Huskies demolished eventual national champion UCLA 103-81 in front of 10,000 spectators at Hec Edmundson Pavilion.
With a 103-81 drubbing of the Bruins, the Huskies pulled off one of the biggest upsets in Seattle sports history still to this day.
Five Huskies scored in double figures led by the 27 points of reserve Larry Jackson, who also led all rebounders with 14. Clarence Ramsey scored 22 points, Larry Pounds had 18, James Edwards tallied 14 and Lars Hansen added 11 points.
It marked the final career defeat for legendary UCLA coach John Wooden, who went on that season to guide the Bruins to eight more victories and his 10th NCAA title.
