Huskies Hoping Brockman's Free-Throw Shooting Improves

Posted: Updated:

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - The University of Washington men's
basketball team is getting great rebounding from senior Jon
Brockman, but the Huskies could use better free-throwing shooting,

Brockman had a career-tying 18 rebounds in last Saturday's
triple-overtime loss in Seattle to Pac-10 co-leader California
which kept Washington out of the league lead. But he was just
2-for-8 from the free-throw line and missed two free throws in the
final three minutes of regulation, while Cal rallied from eight
points down.

He was just 5-for-17 from the free-throw line against Stanford
and California last week.

The Huskies (11-4, 2-1) will be in Oregon for two games this
week. They'll face University of Oregon (6-10, 0-4) at 7 tonight at
McArthur Court in Eugene and Oregon State (6-8, 1-3) at 7 Saturday
in Corvallis.

Brockman needs just eight rebounds to replace 72-year-old Doug
Smart as Washington's all-time leading rebounder.
