And Isaiah Thomas has suddenly stepped up his game
(Not only that, but the UW Seismology lab apparently registered a slight tremor during Lynch’s run.)
Just as the Seahawk game ended, the Husky hoops team turned on the jets, dropping a 62-point second-half on a game Oregon State squad. Isaiah Thomas has seriously stepped up his game since Gaddy’s injury, averaging 19.5 points and 8.5 assists over the weekend.
