Former Washington teammates, past Husky greats and UW football coach Chris Petersen extended congratulations to Andrews after he poured in 47 points Wednesday night.
Oh, what a night.
The buzz emanating from Andrew Andrews’ 47-point farewell hasn’t died.

And after Andrews led the Washington Huskies to a 99-91 point victory over in-state rival Washington State, the platitudes continued to roll in.
