Washington Huskies Basketball

Apart from the 1950s when the team made all four of their Elite 8 appearances and their sole appearance in the Final Four (1953), the Washington Huskies have always been better known for their football team’s prowess on the gridiron than their basketball team’s success on the hardcourt. Recent years, however, have seen the Huskies basketball team win their conference tournament on three occasions and reach the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA March Madness postseason tournament three times as well. The last few seasons have been disappointing, though, with a disastrous 5-21 season in 2020-21 the worst of them. Huskies fans will be hoping to see a return to contention for their team in 2024 and beyond.
