The Washington Huskies got swept on their recent road trip in Los Angeles, California, which pushed their losing streak to a disappointing eight consecutive games.
Tonight’s game will be televised on the Pac-12 Networks, and the Huskies will face an opponent who beat them by six-points earlier this season in the Bay Area.
Washington came out and established a 12-point lead against the UCLA Bruins, during their 67-57 defeat, but another scoring drought in the second half led to their demise.
Stanford is currently 16-9 (5-7) on the season, and recently suffered a 69-60 defeat at home against the Arizona Wildcats, with the game never really in jeopardy for the Wildcats.
