Big Pac-12 Road Games On Tap
SEATTLE - After a big win at home last week, the Washington Huskies will hit the road with first place in the Pac-12 on the line. A win over Oregon State on Wednesday would put the Huskies in sole possession of the Pac-12 lead, with Washington, Oregon State, and Stanford all currently tied at 4-1-0. Washington will then head to California for another big Pac-12 game, taking on San Diego State on Sunday.
This is Washington's first two-game road trip of the season. The Huskies were undefeated on two-game road trips last year, with their only road losses coming at CSUN and at Georgetown in the NCAA Tournament. The Huskies have not lost a Pac-12 road game since October 21, 2018 to Stanford and are on a seven-game Pac-12 road win streak.
The matchup with Oregon State will feature two of the conference's top three scorers in Dylan Teves and OSU's Gloire Amanda. Amanda is one of only two players to score on the Huskies this year, recording a brace earlier this year. Washington has faced all five of the conference's top non-Husky scorers: Amanda is the only one to record a point against the Huskies thus far.
In the first 36 games of his career, Teves had six goals. In the last five games, he has five goals, including a brace against Seattle U. Teves has not gone back-to-back games without recording a point all year long and has already set a new career high with 13 points. With two more points, Teves would reach the 15-point mark for the first time in his career. Washington has had at least one player record 15 points in all but one of Jamie Clark's seasons as head coach.
Charlie Ostrem now has six points in his last five games, with at least one assist in four of those games. His four assists this year are already the most assists by a Husky defender since Justin Fiddes had four in 2017. The last Husky defender with more assists in a single season was Justin Schmidt, who had seven assists in 2014.
Sam Fowler is now 15th in the nation in GAA, with no keeper ranked ahead of him having played as many games as Fowler. Only four keepers in the nation have played at least five games and maintained a GAA lower than Fowler's 0.32 mark. Oregon State is the only opponent to have scored against Fowler this year.
Fowler is currently on a 379-minute shutout streak. That is the second-longest shutout streak of Fowler's career: he began his collegiate career with a 536-minute shutout streak. Fowler's six shutouts are one off the national lead.
Stanford became the first opponent all year to record 5+ shots on goal against the Huskies, ending the game with six. Washington has held five opponents to two or fewer shots on goal. Only two opponents, UCLA and Stanford, have had more shots than Washington: both of those teams outshot the Huskies 9-8 in Washington wins.
Washington has won 10 of its last 11 games against this week's two opponents, Oregon State and San Diego State. The Huskies have a seven-game win streak against SDSU, its longest active win streak against any Pac-12 opponent. If Washington were to lose to Oregon State, it would be just the fifth time in program history that the Huskies have lost back-to-back games to the Beavers.
Washington has had six different players score multiple goals this year, matching their total from 2019. The Huskies have not had more players score multiple goals since 2017, when eight different players did so.
Lucas Meek has not recorded a point in his last two games. That is tied for the longest scoreless streak of his career: he did not record a point in his first two collegiate games as well. Meek has averaged a point per game in his career thus far.
