PICK: I’m leaning toward Washington here, but probably staying away. The Huskies have had a couple of manageable games so far and they’ve been taking care of business. In the comeback win over North Florida, Washington shot 40.3 percent from the field with 48 rebounds and 13 assists in a pretty nice effort. If the Huskies can keep the shots falling at that rate they should be fine on a cover against the Trailblazers.
