SU has fired up 23 3-pters in the 1st half, making 7. Washington shot 27.6% and turned it over 10 times. Hard to win that way.

36-22 SU over UW at half. Huskies offensive started to play much better in the final 5 minutes. SU in constant attack mode.

The Orange zone seems to know exactly where Kelsey Plum is on every possession. Also, UW shot just 1-of-14 FG in the 1st Q.
