The Scouting Report
Last season, the Huskies posted an 8–3–1 record, finishing the season third in the PAC–8. Despite such a successful season, it wasn't the usual dominating performance for the Huskies, who won back-to-back conference championships in 2011 and 2012. As the 2013–2014 season gets underway, the team looks to reclaim its top spot in the Pac–8 and, perhaps more importantly, reclaim the I-5 Cup during its four-game series in January against the Oregon Ducks. Last year, the Ducks took the trophy from the Huskies for the first time since 2009, taking the symbol of their rivalry back across the border into Oregon's uncharted wilderness. Luckily, this year's Huskies are well equipped to follow in their forebears' paw prints, particularly with the leadership of returning first-team All-PAC-8 forward Ryan Minkoff.
Members of the Pacific-12 Conference, the University of Washington Huskies athletic department boasts a rich history of triumphs. In 2001, their football team added a Rose Bowl victory to a trophy case that already contained the laurels of four national titles, the most recent of which occurred in 1991. In 2011, the men's basketball team claimed its third Pac-12 tournament title, and in 2005, the women's volleyball team steamrolled competition en route to its first-ever national title. Much of the Husky-related glory unfolds on the floors and fields of UW's lineup of pristine facilities, which includes the historic 72,500-seat Husky Stadium and raucous Alaska Airlines Arena.
