Despite the defeat, Murray said: 'The sky is the limit for this team. We just got to keep doing our thing. Stay together, take one game at a time and play Husky basketball.'
Bad first half followed by a pretty good first half.
That’s how Dejounte Murray summed up Washington’s 98-88 loss at USC on Saturday at Galen Center.
He liked how the Huskies fought to recover from a 44-33 halftime deficit. They pulled to within three points (57-54) with 13:25 to go. But USC responded with a 17-7 run.
Washington never got within six points the rest of the way.
