2019 Tournament PreviewDominating the Pac-12 might not mean what it used to, but winning the regular-season title by three games and reaching the conference tourney final count for something. Former Syracuse assistant Mike Hopkins has the 2-3 zone working, as the Huskies are top 5 in the nation in both block percentage and steal percentage, ranking 20th in KenPom's adjusted defensive efficiency. A 6-5 wing, Matisse Thybulle (9.5 ppg) led the conference in steals (3.4 spg) and was second in blocks (2.3 bpg) on his way to Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year honors. Washington has three seniors in the starting five to rank first in the nation in KenPom's minutes continuity metric, but it's led by 6-4 sophomore guard Jaylen Nowell (16.2 ppg, 5.3 rpg, 3.1 apg, 1.3 spg), the Pac-12 Player of the Year who shoots 43.8 percent from downtown. In the frontcourt, senior Noah Dickerson (12.2 ppg, 7.4 rpg) is capable of dominating (seven double-doubles). Even so, Washington did not win a Quad 1 non-conference game and has some ugly conference losses, including to a historically bad California team.
