With Washington's 93-85 victory over Arizona today in Seattle, the Huskies go undefeated at home for the first time since 1984. Tre Simmons led the way for the Huskies with 24 points, including 5 3-pointers, in his final home game.

The Huskies are now 23-4, 13-3 in the conference. If they defeat Cal and Stanford in the Bay Area next week, the Huskies will win the Pac-10 regular season championship. Even if Arizona and Washington were to tie at 15-3, the Huskies will earn the tiebreaker because of their 2-0 record against Stanford (Arizona was 1-1 against the Cardinal).

Three years ago, Lorenzo Romar took over a Husky basketball program that was one of the worst programs in the Pac-10. Three years later, the Huskies are a Top 15 program. Romar has made Husky basketball exciting to watch. Of course, it's the players that make the excitement happen. But it is Romar who has brought the players to Montlake.

And in the "dammit, we should have known about this site a long time ago" department, check out The Dawg Pack Blog. The Dawg Pack Blog features insight from members of "The DawgPack", or in other words, the students who have made Hec Ed/Bank of America Arena one of the best venues in all of college basketball today. Certainly today's crowd didn't disappoint.

Now go have some fun tonight, Husky fans. But stay safe.
