Scouting the Huskies:
The Huskies, sitting in fourth-place in the Pac-10, open a four-game homestand this week, looking to build upon their 7-0 record at Bank of America Arena this season. UW has won four of its last five games and 12 of its last 14. Washington was on a modest four-game winning streak before falling 77-63 at No. 6 Stanford. It's first Pac-10 loss at UCLA Jan. 3, snapped a season-high eight-game win streak. The Huskies' only other loss was to then-No. 13 Texas Tech in Lubbock, Nov. 24. UW averages a margin of victory of 16.1 points in 13 wins, but has won two of its last five games in the final seconds of the contest. The Huskies bounced back from the UCLA loss with an 83-81 overtime win over USC on a bucket by junior All-America candidate Giuliana Mendiola. And against Arizona Jan. 11, UW pulled off a 60-59 win at Bank of America Arena on a Kristen O'Neill layin. UW is averaging 74.9 points a game while holding its opponent to just 66.4 points. Junior Giuliana Mendiola is the team leader in points (15.4), rebounds (6.1) and assists (4.6) and has scored in double-figures in 15 games including the last eight straight. UW tallied an impressive 8-1 non-conference record this season and it's 13-3 record is its best start since a 14-2 mark to open the 1989-90 campaign. The Huskies are 1-2 record against teams in the Top-25.

A Look At Oregon:
The Ducks have struggled this year with a 6-10 overall record and a 2-5 record against Pac-10 opponents. Oregon is winless on the road against Pac-10 teams this season, including its first loss since 1996 at Oregon State (67-51), Jan. 18. In fact, the Ducks are 7-14 in Pac-10 road games since the 2000-01 season, not including last year's postseason NIT win at Washington. Oregon has been without the services of junior forward Cathrine Kraayeveld for the last seven games because of a staph infection in her right knee. She is expected to miss at least four more weeks. She leads the team with 16.7 points and 11.7 rebounds. Sophomore guard Brandi Davis has 10.6 points and 3.0 rebounds, while freshman center Carolyn Gaines has 10.4 points and 3.6 rebounds. With Kraayeveld out, sophomore foward Andrea Bills is the Ducks' leading rebounder (6.3).

Oregon vs. Washington All-Time Series:
Always a heated battle between these Northwest rivals, Oregon leads the all-time series with Washington 34-28. The Ducks have won 14 of the last 15 meetings against the Huskies. Oregon had won 12-straight against Washington until an 88-80 UW victory on Feb. 23, 2002 in Seattle. Last year, in fact, these teams met a total of four times, with Oregon winning three of the four. The Ducks knocked the Huskies from the second round of the Pac-10 Tournament in Eugene and from the quarterfinals of the WNIT in Seattle during the 2002 season. Prior to last year's win on Feb. 23, the last time the Huskies had defeated the Ducks was Jan.13, 1996 (82-66) in Seattle. UW head coach June Daugherty is 1-13 against Oregon.

A Look At Oregon State:
The Beavers enter the weekend one spot behind Washington in the Pac-10 standings with a 9-7 overall record and 3-4 in the conference. OSU is coming off a win at home vs. in-state rival Oregon (67-51), its first Civil War victory since 1996. The 16-point margin of victory for the Beavers against the Ducks was their largest since the 1993-94 season. Hollye Chapman is tops in scoring for OSU with 11.4 points to go along with 5.9 rebounds. Also scoring in double-figures is Leilani Estavan with 10.3 points. OSU's leading rebounder is Brina Chaney with 7.1 boards, along with 9.2 points a game.

Oregon State vs. Washington All-Time Series:
Washington leads the all-time series with Oregon State 37-22 and has won nine of the last 12 meetings under current head coach June Daugherty. These teams split a pair of games last year with UW winning 74-58 in Corvallis and OSU winning 73-71 (overtime) in Seattle. The last four Beaver vs. Husky meetings have been close, with UW winning three of the last four by seven points or less.

Last Time Out:
UW split a pair of games on its Bay Area swing last weekend, defeating Cal 76-59 at Haas Pavilion, Thursday, before falling to Stanford, 77-63, at Maples Pavilion Saturday. Against Cal, three players scored in double-figures including, a career-high 18 points from sophomore Kristen O'Neill. O'Neill registered a career-high point total for the second consecutive contest, after scoring 17 vs. Arizona Jan. 11. Junior All-America candidate Giuliana Mendiola scored 16 points to go along with six rebounds and a team-high six assists. Senior Emily Autrey contributed 13 points and six boards. The Huskies trailed Cal for most of the first half and by as much as a 12-point deficit (22-10) at the 9:27 mark. But down 27-18 at 3:48, Washington rattled off a 15-0 run to head into the lockerroom with a 32-27 lead. UW continued that momentum with an 18-4 run to open the second half, extending its lead to a 19-point cushion, 50-31, at 12:52. Washington's largest lead of the game was 21 points at 11:32. Three players also scored in double-figures against Stanford (Mendiola-14, junior Andrea Lalum-14 and senior Loree Payne-12), but the Cardinal used a 53-26 rebounding advantage to win its 20th-straight game at home, 77-63. After trailing the entire first half, the Huskies tied it at 41 with 17:59 left and went ahead on O'Neill's 3-pointer at 17:12. But by 6:58, Stanford climbed ahead by as many as nine points until its largest lead of 14 being the final score of the game.

Payne Sets UW Career Three-Pointers Record:
Netting a trio of treys in last weekend's games at Cal and Stanford, senior Loree Payne surpassed her former Husky teammate Megan Franza to claim the UW career record for three-pointers made. Payne now has 213 career three-pointers, two more than Franza who had 211 from 1997-01. Payne also moved ahead of Franza on the Pac-10 list, to secure second only to Arizona's Lisa Griffith (285). Payne ranks third all-time in UW history and fourth in Pac-10 history with 627 three-pointers attempted.

Home Sweet Home:
With a pair of wins vs. Arizona State and Arizona at home last weekend, the Huskies' perfect record this season at Bank of America remained intact. UW has now won seven straight at home for the fourth time in school history. UW last won seven straight at home from the end of 2001 to the beginning of the 2002 season. The school record for a home winning streak is 30 games, set from 1986-88. UW credits much of its home success to stellar fan support, as the Huskies rank second in the Pac-10 (behind Oregon) with an average attendance of 3,809 fans. UW's season-high crowd was 5,458 vs. Arizona, the third-largest single game Pac-10 crowd of the 2002-03 season.

New-Look Lineup:
UW has a new look compared to the team that took the floor to begin the season. UW's initial starting five is down to three, with Burt out and senior Kellie Dalan out for most likely 1-2 more weeks with a stress fracture. Taking their places in the starting lineup have been senior Emily Autrey and sophomore Kristen O'Neill, who both played valuable roles coming off the bench earlier in the season. Autrey started 26 games last year and O'Neill started 24.

High-Scoring Huskies:
Washington has averaged 74.9 points a game, third-highest in the Pac-10 behind Arizona (78.5) and UCLA (76.4). The Huskies have also posted an average margin of victory of 16.1 points in their 13 wins, including a 20.4-point margin in their seven home wins. Washington has won nine of 13 games by at least a 10-point margin.

Kayla Burt's UW Career Comes To A Close:
Washington announced Jan. 6 that Husky sophomore Kayla Burt will no longer play Div. I basketball due to being diagnosed with a rare heart condition called Long Q-T Syndrome. Burt's heart stopped beating on New Year's Eve and her teammates came to her rescue, performing CPR until paramedics could arrive. On Jan. 6 she had surgery to implant a defibrillator in the right side of her chest, a device which will monitor her heart rhythm and shock it back to a normal rhythm should an abnormality occur again. Burt started all 10 Husky games before falling ill. She averaged eight points and 3.7 rebounds a game. Burt turned in a stellar effort in UW's Dec. 22 win over Iowa State, either matching or setting career highs in rebounds (seven), assists (eight), three-pointers made (three) and three-pointers attempted (six).

Burt Named Honorary Captain:
Upon her return to the team, Kayla Burt was asked by her teammates to accept the role of co-captain which she accepted. Burt will join previous co-captains seniors Loree Payne and Cheryl Sorenson and junior Giuliana Mendiola. She was also announced as UW's honorary 'sixth starter' in her first game back with her teammates against Arizona State.

Burt's Story Reaches Nationwide Audience:
The story of Kayla Burt's sudden-death episode and the efforts of her teammates to revive her has not only received a great deal of attention from the Seattle media, but has reached nationwide audiences as well. So far, Burt and her teammates have been featured on Good Morning America and Inside Edition, as well as a live interview on CNN's Connie Chung Tonight that aired Friday, Jan. 10. The story has also been covered by USA Today, Sports Illustrated, ESPN.com and the L.A. Times among other national publications.

UW Leads Pac-10, Ranks Eighth Nationally In 3-Pointers:
As of Jan. 21, the Huskies ranked eighth in the nation with 7.9 three-pointers per game. Villanova is the nation's leader with 8.7 treys per game. UW has drained at least 10 three-pointers in five games and its 126 treys lead the Pac-10 this season. Senior Loree Payne, UW's all-time career leader in 3-pointers, is second among conference players with 34. UW has two of the top three players in the conference in three-point shooting percentage. Junior Giuliana Mendiola is second with a .423 percentage (22-52) and senior Emily Autrey is third with a .422 percentage (19-45). The Huskies tied their Pac-10 and school records with 16 three-pointers vs. St. Bonaventure Nov. 29, while adding 15 vs. North Carolina State Dec. 6. UW shares the Pac-10 record with Stanford.

More National Rankings:
As of Jan. 21, UW was also 17th in the nation with 18.6 assists per game.

All-America Candidates Leading The Way:
As was expected, All-America candidates Loree Payne and Giuliana Mendiola have led the way for the Huskies so far this season. The pair has shared high-scoring honors in 11 of the Huskies' 16 games with Mendiola averaging 15.4 points a contest and Payne averaging 13.6. Both were All-Pac-10 first-team selections last year. In her third season as a Husky team captain, Payne has scored in double-figures in 11 games, including a career-high 29 vs. Washington State. She also leads the team with 34 three-pointers and has recently set the UW career record (213). Mendiola, in her second year as team co-captain, has scored in double-figures in all but one game, while also leading the team with 6.1 rebounds. Mendiola has also dished out a team-high 74 assists. The Husky guard hit the game-winning shot in UW's 83-81 overtime win at USC Jan. 5, and has been the only Husky named Pac-10 Player of the Week this year (Dec. 2-8).

O'Neill Has Back-To-Back Career Nights:
Sophomore Kristen O'Neill had big shoes to fill when stepping in for Kayla Burt in the starting five, but the 6-1 guard has thrived since. O'Neill posted back-to-back career games for UW. She recorded a then-career-high in points (17) and a career high in rebounds (nine) against Arizona Saturday, Jan. 11. With UW trailing by one point, O'Neill grabbed the rebound off Giuliana Mendiola's errant shot and layed it in for the game-winning bucket with two seconds left vs. the Wildcats. She followed up that performance with a new career-high 18 points vs. Cal. O'Neill came off the bench in UW's first 10 games, after starting 24 as a freshman last year. She has started the last six games.

Autrey Thrust Back Into Starting Role:
After starting 26 of 31 games a a junior last year, senior Emily Autrey was relegated to coming off the bench in the first eight games of her senior campaign this season. The 6-0 forward made the most of that new role, sparking the Huskies with 11.1 points and 4.5 rebounds off the bench, including a career-high performance of points (23) and three-pointers (five) vs. North Carolina State Dec. 6. But with senior Kellie Dalan down with the stress fracture injury, Autrey took her place in the starting five in UW's game with Iowa State and has started since. Autrey came three boards shy of a double-double with 10 points and seven rebounds, to go along with two assists in that game vs. Iowa State. She followed that up with a team-high 11 rebounds and seven points in her second start vs. Washington State. Autrey, fourth on the team with 10.6 points and second in rebounding with 5.2 boards, has scored in double-figures in seven games.

Lalum Steady As She Goes:
Junior forward Andrea Lalum is right behind Mendiola and Payne when it comes to offensive production. Averaging 10.9 points a game, Lalum has scored in double-figures in nine games including two performances of 20 points or more. Lalum scored a season-high 23 points vs. Iowa State, two shy of matching her career-high set last year. She also recorded her ninth-career double-double with 20 points and 10 rebounds vs. Houston at the N.C. State Tournament. She is currently third on the team in scoring (10.9 points) and third in rebounds (4.8).

Huskies Lose Dalan To Stress Fracture Injury:
Husky senior forward Kellie Dalan suffered a stress fracture in her right foot and could be out for possibly 1-2 more weeks. Dalan, who started the first eight games, had been feeling pain in her right foot and an X-ray performed after the Huskies' 83-56 win over San Francisco revealed the stress fracture. Dalan had been averaging 6.4 points and 2.5 rebounds a game. Senior Emily Autrey, who averaged 11.1 points off the bench in the first eight games, took Dalan's place in the lineup.

Injury Update:
Senior Kellie Dalan could be out for 1-2 more weeks with a stress fracture in her right foot...sophomore Kirsten Brockman is out for the season, recovering from surgery to repair a stress fracture in her left foot...freshman Angie Jones is rehabilitating her right knee after ACL surgery Nov. 22...Jones tore the same ACL during her junior season at Holy Names Academy (Seattle)...freshman Jill Bell had surgery to repair a ligament in her left thumb Nov. 7 and has been cleared to play.

Payne Continues To Climb UW Top-10 Scoring List:
After breaking into the UW top-10 career scoring list vs. Texas Tech, Nov. 24, senior All-America candidate Loree Payne continues to climb the ranks as the season continues. Payne is in sole possession of ninth-place with 1,468 points. She now needs 41 points to move past Carlin McClary (1979-82) for eighth place (1,508 points). Payne, just the 17th player in UW history to score at least 1,000 points, broke into the UW Top-10 career scoring list with her first bucket vs. Texas Tech, Nov. 24. Her three-pointer gave her 1,263 career points and sole possession of 10th place on the list. UW Career Scoring Leaders

Payne Named Finalist For Senior CLASS Award:
Senior Loree Payne is one of 30 finalists nominated for the second annual Senior CLASS Award. The Senior CLASS (Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School) Award is presented to the nation's senior player of the year for NCAA Div. I men's and women's basketball. The award was developed in response to the recent trend of college basketball players leaving early to turn professional. Last year, Connecticut's Sue Bird and Maryland's Juan Dixon each won the award.

Mendiola On Payne's Heels In Career 3-Pointers:
Junior Giuliana Mendiola is one year behind fellow All-America candidate senior Loree Payne, but she is on her heels on the UW career three-point scoring lists. Mendiola is tied for seventh all-time in three-pointers made (88) and eighth in three-pointers attempted (247). In fact, Mendiola entered the season ranked ahead of Payne in career three-point field goal percentage. Mendiola is fifth (.356) and Payne is seventh (.332). Last year as a sophomore, Mendiola also turned in the third-highest single season assists (152) in UW history. Only Lisa Raschkow (1987, 161) and Katia Foucade (1995, 157) had more assists in a season than Mendiola did in 2002.

Sister Act:
For the second-straight season, the Husky roster boasts two sets of sisters: juniors Giuliana and Gioconda Mendiola, and senior Kellie Dalan and sophomore Kristen O'Neill. The Mendiolas are one year apart in age, almost to the day, but Gioconda took a year off between high school graduation and college so that she could play four years of college ball with her sister. Kellie Dalan, formerly O'Neill, got married this summer, hence the name change. The only other pair of sisters to play together at Washington were Heidi (1993-96) and Molly Hills (1996-99), who overlapped the 1996 season.

Husky Coaching Staff:
Aiming to guide the Huskies to their sixth postseason appearance during her brief tenure, UW head coach June Daugherty enters her seventh season at the helm of the women's basketball program. She has an overall record of 113-81 at Washington and a 13-year career head coaching mark of 236-155. Sunny Smallwood is in her 10th year as a Husky women's basketball assistant, while Mike Daugherty enters his seventh season. Shimmy Gray enters her third year on staff.

New Faces:
Washington's roster boasts four new faces this year in redshirt freshman Nicole Castro and true freshmen Jill Bell, Angie Jones and Erica Schelly. Bitten by the preseason injury bug, Bell and Jones have yet to make their collegiate debuts. Jones, from Seattle, tore her ACL in an Oct. 22 practice and had surgery Nov. 22. At Holy Names Academy, Jones led her team to two straight Class 3A state appearances and two consecutive Metro league chamionships. She earned All-Metro first-team honors in 2001 and 2002. Bell, from Bellevue, Wash., had surgery to repair a torn ligament in her left thumb in November and has been cleared to play, but hasn't appeared in a game yet. At Bellevue High School, Bell led her team to four straight state tournament appearances and four straight league crowns. Castro, from Darwin, Australia, joined the team in January of last year after graduating from high school in the fall of 2002. Castro, who attended St. John's College High School, was selected twice to the Adidas All-Star Camp in 1999 and 2000 and was named the 2001 Southern Cross Women's League Youth Player of the Year. Schelly, from Fort Collins, Colo., is the only true freshmen to have seen any playing time. She was honored as a Nike All-American and entered her senior season at Poudre High School as a Street & Smith's Preseason All-America pick. Schelly led Poudre High to the Class 5A state tournament four straight years and was a four-time first-team all-conference honoree. She garnered honorable mention all-state honors as a sophomore and junior.

Huskies Take Off-Season Trip To Australia:
This past June, the Huskies took a tour of Australia, where they played five games against teams from the Australian Young Women's National Teams. It was the UW women's basketball team's second trip to Australia, with the first taken in 1998. UW split its first two games against the Australian Young Women's National Team in Sydney, but won the next three contests against three different opponents. In Brisbane, UW defeated the Brisbane Capitals, 104-78 and the Under-18 South State Team, 128-78. Among those fans cheering on the Huskies was the family of redshirt freshman Nicole Castro, who hails from Darwin, Australia (about one and a half hours from Brisbane). Washington wrapped its 11-day tour with a 128-69 victory over the Kuiyam Pride Women's Team, 128-69, in Cairns.

UW Ranked In Three Preseason Polls:
Washington was ranked in three Top-25 preseason polls. The Huskies checked in at No. 22 according to Basketball News, and are ranked 25th by Lindy's and Street & Smith. In the Associated Press Preseason Poll, UW ranked 27th with 94 votes, and in the USA Today/ESPN Poll the Huskies are 32nd with 74 votes.

UW Represented on NCAA Advisory Committee:
Washington senior associate athletic director for sports programs and student services, Marie Tuite, is serving on this year's NCAA Div. I Women's Basketball Committee. Her appointment began Sept. 1, 2001. The NCAA Committee is charged with the selection of teams and overall administration of the NCAA Div. I Women's Basketball Championship.
