Scouting report

Prior to heading to Oregon, the Huskies talked about earning a little payback against Oregon and Oregon State, which both blew out the Huskies in Seattle last month. Washington didn’t get its first dose of revenge on Thursday, falling by double digits against Oregon State, so now they’ll try to at least knock off rival Oregon on the road, and in the process end a school-record 11-game losing streak.

Sami Whitcomb had another big night Thursday, finishing with 23 points and seven rebounds, but had little help as no other Husky scored more than eight points or grabbed more than four rebounds. The Huskies hope Kristi Kingma can break out for a big game like she did the last time they were on the road when she scored 44 points in two games in L.A. As good as Whitcomb has been, she could use some help like that as the Huskies seek their second Pac-10 win.

Oregon (8-15, 4-8) Pac-10, is coming off a 13-point loss at home to Washington State, and provides the Huskies with one of their best remaining opportunities to end their losing streak. The Ducks have lost four straight and seven of their last eight. The Huskies’ goal today will be slowing Oregon guards Taylor Lilley and Micaela Cocks, who combined to score 43 points the last time the two teams met.
