Game recap: Horned Frogs 86, Huskies 71

Takeaway

The Washington Huskies (4-3) lost to the Texas Christian Horned Frogs (7-0) for the second time in a week Wednesday night, dropping their first true road game of the season 86-71 at Schollmaier Arena in Fort Worth (box). Washington surrendered 18 points in a row in the first half to give up the lead, and committed a season-high 25 turnovers.

Essential moment

After David Crisp hit a three-point shot for a 22-5 lead, Washington’s offense went cold. The Huskies committed five turnovers and  missed five shots on its next 10 possessions, allowing TCU, which beat UW 93-80 in a tourney in Las Vegas, its run of 18 unanswered.

Huskies

Washington shot 45.8 percent from the field Despite winning the rebound battle 46-33, the Huskies were outscored on second-chance points, 19-17.

Star freshman Markelle Fultz finished with game-high 21 points, a game-high 14 rebounds, six assists, and a game-high six turnovers.

Carlos Johnson (13 points) and Dominic Green (11 points) hit double digits after coming off the bench. Starters Noah Dickerson and Matisse Thybulle fouled out after 29 and 18 minutes, respectively.

Words

“It was hard to stop the bleeding. We were our own worst enemy turning the ball over 16 times in the first half. I hate to say this, but our first true road game, when things got tough, we panicked.” – coach Lorenzo Romar

Next

The Huskies travel to Spokane to play No. 8 Gonzaga (6-0) at the McCarthey Athletic Center Dec. 7 (8 p.m., ESPN2).

      I’ve been a supporter of Romar. The man can flat out recruit. I want to hold off and see what happens the rest of the season and compare reality vs expectations. If he falls woefully short, then I think it’s time to search. (My opinion matters not).

      What comforts me though is that since he has shown that top recruits can and will come to Washington, we can expect a good hire to succeed Coach Romar. We don’t need to hire an under the radar guy. We can get an elite coach who can keep bringing elite talent.

      Romar isn’t proving to be a great X’s and O’s coach, but he has brought this program up from the depths. It’s because of him that this program is set to take off.

        The slow start after five tourney-free years adds more pressure. Romar needs to get something done this year.
