UW Huskies to host Boise State in NIT first round
The Washington Huskies men’s basketball team will finish its season in the annual National Invitational Tournament as a No. 5 seed.
The Huskies will open play this week against fourth-seeded Boise State, but they will host the game in Seattle due to an arena conflict for the Broncos.
The game is set for 7 p.m. Wednesday.
In its first season under head coach Mike Hopkins, UW is 20-12 overall. The Huskies finished seventh in the Pac-12 with a 10-8 conference record. They lost their lone game in the Pac-12 Tournament to Oregon State 69-66 in overtime last Wednesday.
