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, too.
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.
