What to Know

The Huskies were able to grind out a solid victory over the Seattle Redhawks this past Saturday, winning 64-56. Among those leading the charge for Washington was forward Emmitt Matthews Jr., who posted a double-double on 17 points and 11 rebounds.
Meanwhile, the sound you heard last Friday was the absolute smackdown Utah Valley laid on the Bethesda Flames.
Washington is the favorite in this one, with an expected 5.5-point margin of victory. But bettors beware: they are only 1-5 against the spread when favored.
The wins brought Washington up to 5-4 and Utah Valley to 8-3. A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: The Huskies have only been able to knock down 39.40% percent of their shots, which is the 15th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. The Wolverines’ defense has more to brag about, as they they have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 38.60%, which places them 32nd in college basketball. Maybe that strength will give Utah Valley the oomph they need to beat the odds.
