Saturday Celebration
Washington commemorates its 100th season of basketball with a celebration on Saturday, Feb. 16 surrounding the Huskies' 5 p.m. game against California. Pre-game activities include interactive games and an autograph zone where numerous Husky legends will be available, including Bob Houbregs, James Edwards and Chris Welp. The first 2,500 fans will receive of special-edition bobblehead of legendary Washington crew coach Dick Erickson. A limited-edition lithograph commemorating 100 seasons of Husky Basketball is available at the Husky Team Shop or online at www.huskyfever.com

All-Century Team
Fans voted at games and online during January for the Washington men's basketball All Century Team that was announced Wednesday. The voting was part of this year's 'Celebrating 100 Seasons of Husky Hoops.' Members of the All Century Team will be honored at halftime of the Huskies' Feb. 16 home game with California.

Scoring Streak
Sophomore forward Doug Wrenn's 20.6-point scoring average is the highest for a Husky since Chris Welp averaged 20.8 points in 1996-97. Wrenn led all Washington scorers in each of the last 11 games, averaging 26.0 points during that span. He scored 36 percent of the Huskies' points (286 of 784) in those 11 games and has nearly 2-1/2 times more points as the next-highest scoring Husky (Curtis Allen has 116 points in the last 11 games). Wrenn topped the 30-point barrier four times in his last six outings with 32 against Oregon (Jan. 24), 34 at Washington State (Jan. 31), 30 at Arizona State (Feb. 9) and a career-high 35 at Arizona (Feb. 7) that marked the highest scoring output by a Husky since Todd MacCulloch tallied 38 at James Madison on Dec. 7, 1996. Wrenn reached the 30-point plateau in three consecutive games, becoming the third player in UW history to accomplish that feat. The last Husky with three consecutive 30-point outings was Louie Nelson in 1973 (Feb. 24-March 5). Bob Houbregs strung together three 30-point games in 1953 (Mar. 7-14). Wrenn, who has 11 games with at least 20 points, led all Husky scorers on 19 occasions.

Shuffling Starters
Washington has started eight different lineups this year after implementing 15 unique lineups last season. The lineup of Wrenn/Leep/Dixon/Allen/Knight started 15 of the Huskies' 24 games, posting a 6-9 record. The seven other starting units combined for a 2-7 record. After using the same lineup for 15 of the first 19 games, the Huskies have utilized different sets of starters in each of the last five outings. The rotating lineups have seen nine different players drawing at least one starting assignment. Senior center David Dixon is the only player to start every game this season.

The California Series
> Washington owns a slim 67-66 lead in the all-time series despite losing the last four meetings with California.

> Cal won this season's first meeting by a 62-50 count on Jan. 17 in Berkeley.

> The Golden Bears' current four-game winning streak is their longest in its series with Washington since a five-game stretch between 1993-95.

> The Bears swept the season series last year for the first time since 1997, winning 79-64 on Jan. 27, 2001 in Seattle and 82-66 on Feb. 22, 2001 in Berkeley.

> The Huskies own a 43-24 series advantage over California at home despite falling in the last two meetings in Seattle. The Bears won in their last two visits to Seattle, 75-64 in 2000 and 79-64 in 2001.

> Sixth-year California Coach Ben Braun has a 7-4 record against the Huskies.

> Ninth-year Washington Coach Bob Bender has a 6-11 record against California.

> Ninth-year UW assistant coach Eric Hughes, a 1983 Oakland High School graduate, served on the staff at Cal in 1992 and 1993. He helped the Golden Bears advance to the Sweet 16 his final season as Todd Bozeman's lone assistant coach.

The Last Meeting
California 62, UW 50 (Jan. 17, 2002, Berkeley, Calif.)

Joe Shipp scored 11 of his 18 points in the second half as California rallied from a halftime deficit to defeat Washington 62-50 and remain undefeated at Haas Pavilion. The Golden Bears (12-3, 3-2) won all 11 of their home games. Washington (7-10, 1-6) led by as many as eight points before settling on a 33-31 halftime edge. After UW's Doug Wrenn opened the second half with a pair of free throws, California staged a 13-4 run to go ahead for good at 44-39 with 13:19 left to play. The Huskies helped the Cal run, committing five of their 21 turnovers during the five-minute span. The Bears scored the final six points of the game to finish with their largest margin of the game at 12 points. UW made only five field goals and scored a season-low 17 points in the second half, shooting 17 percent (5-30) after intermission. Freshman Jamal Sampson had a double-double with 17 points and 15 rebounds for the Bears. Wrenn notched his second double-double with 12 points and 19 rebounds for the Huskies who also got 11 rebounds from David Dixon. Curtis Allen chipped in 11 points for UW.

Why 'D.E.'?
The Washington basketball players are wearing a black patch on the front of their jerseys with the initials 'D.E.' in remembrance of Dick Erickson, a friend of the basketball program who died in July. Erickson was involved for nearly 50 years with UW athletics. He participated as an athlete then a coach with the Husky rowing team before serving as the Facilities Manager for the athletic department. Erickson was inducted into the Husky Hall of Fame on two occasions, in 1984 as part of the 1958 national championship crew and in 1994 as the head coach of the men's crew from 1968-82. As a write-in candidate, Erickson won an on-line vote in the fall in which fans were asked who they would like to have portrayed by a bobblehead doll. He received more votes than current Husky head coaches Bob Bender, Rick Neuheisel and June Daugherty did. Bobbleheads bearing his likeness will be distributed to the first 2,500 spectators at the Feb. 16 men's basketball game against California and his family will be recognized during pre-game.

Injury Report
Freshman forward Mike Jensen, who dislocated his left shoulder during practice on Dec. 3, underwent surgery on Dec. 10 and will miss the rest of the season. Jensen suffered a torn labrum. He is the second Husky big man to suffer a season-ending injury, joining 6-10 center Marlon Shelton who had left knee surgery on Oct. 16.

Strenuous Schedule
Washington's schedule was rated the nation's second most difficult in the Feb. 11 Sagarin Ratings published by USA Today. Nine of the 16 Husky losses came against teams that are currently ranked. Six teams on the UW schedule were listed in this week's (Feb. 11) Associated Press top-25 poll, including eighth-ranked Gonzaga, Arizona (#9), Stanford (#12), Oregon (#17), UCLA (#20) and USC (#25). Four of the Huskies' last seven opponents were ranked at the time of the game.

Dynamic Doug
One of the most eagerly anticipated debuts in Husky history was that of sophomore Doug Wrenn, a supremely athletic 6-8 forward who red-shirted last season after transferring from Connecticut. Wrenn fulfilled expectations with a 19-point, nine-rebound performance against Bowling Green (Nov. 17) in his inaugural Husky game. He followed that with a 10-point, six-rebound effort against Butler (Nov. 18) and was named the Most Valuable Player of the Top of the World Classic. Wrenn leads the team and ranks second among Pac-10 players with an average of 20.6 points per game, including a career-high 35-point performance at Arizona (Feb. 7). Wrenn tallied 30 points in four of his last six games, including a streak of three straight 30-point performances that tied the school record held by Louie Nelson (1973) and Bob Houbregs (1953). He hit the game-winning shot in a 75-74 win at New Mexico State (Dec. 8), a jumper in the lane with six seconds left. Wrenn topped all Husky scorers on 19 occasions and posted 20 double-figure games, including 11 outings of 20 points. A 1998 Parade All-American and Washington state prep Player of the Year, Wrenn red-shirted last season at UW after transferring from Connecticut. He was projected by Basketball News as the Pac-10's top newcomer. Wrenn, who prepped at Seattle's O'Dea High School, attended two East Coast prep schools in 1998-99 and played at UConn in 1999-2000.

Block Party
Washington rejected 116 shots this season, an average of 4.83 blocks per game that leads all Pac-10 teams. The Huskies are within two blocks of the school record of 118 established by the 1993 UW squad that averaged 4.37 blocks per game. The Huskies have blocked five or more shots in 14 games this season after reaching the five-block plateau in only five games all last season. Senior David Dixon has 56 blocks to ranks second among Pac-10 players with an average of 2.43 per game. He ranks No. 3 among all-time Husky single-season leaders. Dixon's 87 career blocks rank No. 3 in the UW record book. Freshman Jeffrey Day ranks second on the Huskies and eighth in the conference with 28 blocked shots. Nearly one in every four shots Santa Clara attempted on Nov. 24 was rejected as Washington shattered its school single-game record with 14 blocked shots. The Huskies bettered their record of 10 blocks established on Dec. 3, 1991 against Chico State. The leading shot blocker was Dixon whose seven blocks broke the individual UW record of six blocks accomplished twice by Chris Welp in 1986. Dixon matched his single-game record with seven blocks at WSU (Jan. 31).

Less is More
Fans will be seeing a lot less of 6-foot-11 senior center David Dixon this season. He shed 40 pounds from last year and his current 270-pound weight enables him to be more active and average 27.7 minutes per game. Last season, Dixon played 14.7 minutes per contest and averaged 4.7 points and 3.2 rebounds. He has been more effective this year, leading the team and ranking fifth among Pac-10 players with 7.7 rebounds per game. His 8.0-point scoring average is third best on the team. Dixon tallied double-figure points 10 times and has five double-doubles. Dixon's 184 rebounds are 87 more than the 97 he grabbed all last season.

Return to Sender
David Dixon has 56 blocked shots after registering 24 all last season. His 56 blocks are the third-highest single-season total in Washington history. He needs eight blocks to move into the No. 2 spot ahead of Chris Welp who had 63 blocks in 1987. Dixon's 87 career blocked shots rank No. 3 on the school's all-time list, trailing only Chris Welp (186) and Todd MacCulloch (142) who each played four seasons to just three for Dixon. Dixon boasts the top three blocked shot games in Husky history. He denied a school-record seven shots against Santa Clara (Nov. 24), bettering the single-game mark of six set by Chris Welp during the 1986 season. Dixon equaled his own school record with seven blocks at Washington State (Jan. 31). He had six rejections against Arizona State (Jan. 10). Dixon ranks second among all Pac-10 players with 56 blocked shots, an average of 2.33 blocks per game.

'Washington freshman point guard Curtis Allen is the latest technology in Pac-10 point guards. He's got a microchip that Earl Watson and Mike McDonald and Jason Gardner don't have. Hit the mouse and see nothing but blur.'
-- Greg Hansen, Arizona Daily Star

Amazing Allen
Arguably the quickest player in the conference, sophomore point guard Curtis Allen is improving upon last season's performance when he was voted to the Pac-10 All-Freshmen team. He was named the Pac-10 Player of the Week on Dec. 3 after averaging 24.0 points and 6.0 assists in a pair of Husky wins. Allen posted career highs with 21 points and eight assists in UW's 77-64 win over UNLV (Nov. 28). At San Diego (Dec. 1), Allen increased his single-game scoring best to 27 points and added four assists in UW's 98-94 win. His playmaking skills have improved dramatically. Allen was the Huskies' team leader in assists during 17 of 24 games with a total of 106, an average of 4.4 per game. He is the 21st Husky to post a 100-assist season. Last year, Allen distributed 65 assists, an average of 2.2 per contest. He had 15 assists against Arizona State (Jan. 10), the second-highest total in UW history. Allen, who reached his previous career-best of eight by halftime, fell one shy of the school single-game assist record of 16 established by Rafael Stone at California on Feb. 20, 1970. His 3-point shooting is also vastly better. Allen is shooting 37.6 percent from beyond the arc (35-93) after shooting 3-pointers at a 25-percent clip last year. He has 35 treys, 15 more than last season's total of 20. Last season, Allen had one of the finest campaigns for a Husky rookie, ranking third among all-time freshmen in steals (29) and No. 4 in assists (65).

Triple Threat
Washington senior Grant Leep leads all Pac-10 players in 3-point percentage, having converted 53.6 percent (30-56) of his trey tries. He shot 3-for-5 from beyond the arc in both games last week, halting a 2-for-11 slump during his previous five games. Leep leads a Husky team that is shooting 35.0 percent (141-403) from 3-point range, an improvement from last season's 30.6-percent figure.

Notable

Last Husky Game
#12 Stanford 91, UW 65 (Feb. 14, 2002, Seattle)

Casey Jacobsen tallied 31 points and Curtis Borchardt contributed 15 points, 16 rebounds and five blocked shots as 12th-ranked Stanford cruised to a 91-65 win over Washington. The Cardinal (16-6, 9-4) posted its 10th straight win over Washington (8-16, 2-12), the longest streak in the series. Stanford led 42-33 at halftime and opened the second half with a 3-pointer by Tony Giovacchini. The Huskies reeled off eight straight points to draw within 45-41 with 16:05 left to play. The Cardinal responded with a 9-0 surge to push the margin to 54-41 and had another nine-point run near the end of the game. Doug Wrenn, the Pac-10's second-leading scorer behind Jacobsen, was the only Husky to reach double-figures. He netted 24 points and completed his third double-double with 11 rebounds. The Cardinal out-rebounded UW 48-32.

Revolving Roster
The youthful Huskies have a roster that includes seven freshmen, five sophomores, one junior and three seniors. Ten of 16 UW athletes had never played a game at Washington before this season. The predominantly local list of athletes includes 13 of 16 players from high schools in the state of Washington.

Two-Sport Player
Freshman Charles Frederick, who began practicing with the basketball team on Dec. 31, suited up for the first time on Jan. 4 at UCLA. He saw his first game action on Jan. 6 at USC, an eight-minute stint during which he had two points, two assists and one steal. He has played five games. Frederick is a scholarship receiver on the Husky football team that concluded its season Dec. 28 with a 47-43 loss to Texas in the Holiday Bowl. Frederick was the leading punt returner for the Huskies with a 14.6-yard average, including an 87-yard TD return against Idaho (Sept. 22). He was a Sporting News Freshman All-America pick. Frederick was a top-50 national recruit in football and basketball. He averaged 19 points and eight steals from his point guard position as a senior in 2001 at Pope John Paul II High School in Boca Raton, Fla.

Husky Highlights
Doug Wrenn tallied a career-high 35 points at Arizona (Feb. 7), the highest scoring output by a Husky since Todd MacCulloch scored 38 at James Madison on Dec. 7, 1996 ... Wrenn's four 30-point outings are the third-best single-season total by a Husky and are the most since Louie Nelson had five during the 1972-73 campaign ... Curtis Allen converted 20 consecutive free throws between Jan. 10-26 ... Allen distributed 15 assists against Arizona State (Jan. 10), just one shy of the school single-game record of 16 set by Rafael Stone in 1970 ... The Huskies won their home opener on Nov. 24, defeating Santa Clara 69-49. That improved their all-time record in home openers to 81-18. It was the 99th all-time home opener for UW which did not play any home games during the 1905 season ... Four Huskies received all-tournament honors at the Top of the World Classic: Curtis Allen, David Dixon, Erroll Knight and tournament MVP Doug Wrenn ... On Nov. 15 Erroll Knight scored a UW freshman debut record 23 points. He topped the mark of 22 points set by Deon Luton on Nov. 26, 1996 in his collegiate debut against BYU ... The Huskies blocked a school single-game record 14 shots against Santa Clara (Nov. 24), bettering by four the UW record of 10 blocks established on Dec. 3, 1991 ... Curtis Allen was named Pac-10 Player of the Week on Dec. 3, the first time a Washington player received the conference award since Deon Luton on Feb. 8, 1999 ... Ten of the 16 players on the roster had never played a game at Washington prior to this season ... Washington played the season opener without the services of head coach Bob Bender who was in Seattle nursing a bruised rib ... UW's Dec. 11 home game against Gonzaga was a sellout, the second sellout since Bank of America Arena re-opened in November 2000 with a new 10,000-seat configuration. The first sellout was on Jan. 13, 2001 against Arizona.

Home Sweet Home
For the first time in two years, the Huskies will play all of their home games on campus, in newly renovated Bank of America Arena at Edmundson Pavilion. The pavilion underwent a 19-month renovation from March of 1999 to November of 2000. The interior was completely redesigned while the building's exterior went unchanged. Despite an increased seating capacity from 7,900 to approximately 10,000, the arena has a more intimate, basketball-only configuration. The Huskies won 755 games in the Pavilion since it opened on Dec. 27, 1927, more victories than any other school in its current arena. UW played two exhibitions and the season opener last year at different venues before playing the remaining games in The Pavilion.

Tacoma Trio
The Husky roster features three players from Tacoma, Washington. Junior guard Josh Barnard (Bethel HS), a transfer from Tacoma Community College, joins sophomore guards Curtis Allen (Wilson HS) and C.J. Massingale (Mount Tahoma HS). Having three players from Tacoma is remarkable considering UW went 21 years without a Tacoma native on the men's basketball roster. The last Tacoma native to play at UW was Steve Matzen (Lincoln HS) who lettered from 1977-80.

Frosh Phenoms
Freshmen Jeffrey Day and Will Conroy have already made their mark on the Washington record book. Both are climbing the charts among all-time Husky freshmen. Day has 28 blocked shots, tying Chris Welp (1984) for the second-highest single-season total ever for a UW freshman. He is within striking distance of the school's frosh record of 32 established in 1996 by Todd MacCulloch. Day needs four blocks to tie MacCulloch and five to claim sole possession of the record. Conroy distributed 44 assists to tie for seventh with Thalo Green (1998) among all-time Husky rookie playmakers. Conroy needs 15 assists to move into the No. 6 spot ahead of Mark Pope who had 58 assists in 1992.

Husky Tickets
Good seats are available for all Washington home games. The Pepsi 'Fun for Four' Family Pack offers four general admission game tickets, four Pepsi drinks and four hot dogs for only $25. Reserved seats for individual Husky games are $16 while general admission seats are $6 and $3 for current UW students. Visit the Husky Ticket Office, located in the Graves Building, or call (206-543-2200) for information. Individual game reserved tickets will also be available on-line via the athletic department website: www.gohuskies.com

Big Ben
Washington's inside corps was bolstered by the addition of 6-10 walk-on center Ben Devoe who began practicing with the team on Dec. 31. Devoe, who has not participated in a game, gives UW a much-needed big body after the season-ending injuries of Marlon Shelton (left knee) and Mike Jensen (left shoulder). He suited up for the first time Thursday (Jan. 10) against Arizona State, but has not played. He will likely red-shirt this season, preserving four seasons of eligibility. Devoe averaged 14 points and eight rebounds per game as a senior in 2000 at Olympia (Wash.) High School. He attended the Air Force Prepatory Academy in Colorado Springs for one semester before beginning a Mormon mission in Pennsylvania. His mission was cut short by a back injury that forced Devoe to return to Olympia this fall. His availability was made known to the Husky coaching staff in December and late in the month he was accepted into UW for the winter quarter that began January 7.

Non-Conference Conquests
Washington completed its non-conference schedule with a 6-4 record, its first winning record since the 1998-99 team posted a 7-3 record. UW had a 5-7 non-conference record in 1999-2000 and was 6-6 last season.

The Oregon State Series
> Washington has a 138-132 lead in the all-time series that began in 1904.

> Oregon State won the last five meetings, sweeping the last two season series in the process. OSU's current five-game winning streak is the longest in its series with Washington since a similar five-game skein from 1991-93. Oregon State hasn't won six straight versus UW since an 11-game streak between 1978 and 1983.

> The Beavers boast a 92-42 advantage over Washington in Corvallis, including victories in the Huskies' last two visits to Gill Coliseum.

> Second-year Oregon State Coach Ritchie McKay is the only former assistant to coach against Bob Bender. He has a 3-1 all-time record against Washington. McKay's Portland State team lost to the Huskies 83-70 on Nov. 30, 1996 in Seattle before his OSU team won his last three meetings with the Huskies.

> McKay was a graduate assistant coach at Washington during the 1988-89 season under Andy Russo and returned to serve as an assistant during Bender's first two years at UW, the 1993-94 and 1994-95 seasons. McKay left Washington to become the head coach at Portland State. He then went to Colorado State before his arrival at Oregon State.

> Ninth-year Washington Coach Bob Bender has a 10-7 record against Oregon State and is 1-3 against McKay.

The Last Meeting
Oregon State 68, UW 53 (Jan. 26, 2002, Seattle)

Philip Ricci scored seven of his 21 points during the final 5:35 of the first half when Oregon State took control en route to its fifth straight win over Washington, a 68-53 decision at Bank of America Arena. The Huskies (8-12, 2-8) got a 3-pointer by Erroll Knight at 7:16 and then missed their final seven shots in the first half. UW led 20-18 before Ricci fueled a 14-4 Beaver run to take a 32-24 halftime advantage. Oregon State (10-9, 3-6) opened the second half with a 12-5 surge behind seven more Ricci points, taking a commanding 44-29 lead with 15:17 left to play. Jimmie Haywood added 11 points for Oregon State which shot 51 percent from the field (25-49) while limiting the Huskies to 38-percent accuracy (17-45). Doug Wrenn led UW in scoring for the seventh straight game with 19 points. David Dixon registered his fifth double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.

Husky Talk
Tune in to KOMO (1000 AM) every Monday night at 6 p.m. for 'Husky Talk,' a half-hour call-in and interview show featuring head coach Bob Bender and KOMO Radio's Bob Rondeau who does play-by-play for all UW games.

Signed, Sealed, Delivered
Washington received commitments during the early signing period (Nov. 14-21) from two prep standouts, both from Seattle's Garfield High School. Brandon Roy, a 6-5 wing player, is one of the premier prep players in the nation and Anthony Washington is a 6-9 rising power forward prospect who initially signed last year with the Huskies, but returned to Garfield to complete some coursework. Those two will join the team in the fall of 2002 and be reunited with former prep teammate Will Conroy who is currently a freshman point guard at UW. The Huskies have one scholarship to offer during the late letter of intent period that begins April 15.
