If dreams could come true
With the annual Pac-12 conference tournament coming up, I wanted to look back on the players that would give the Washington Huskies an absolute edge going into the tourney. A no chance for failure type of team.
Now I know that this isn’t real life, but one can dream right?!
PG: Isaiah Thomas
SG: Brandon Roy
SF: Quincy Pondexter
PF: Jon Brockman
C: Todd MacCulloch
Isaiah Thomas'(2008-2011) 16.4 ppg rank number nine all-time for career ppg for the Huskies. To go along with those numbers Thomas also added career averages of 4.o assists (#3 all-time) and 1.2 steals (#8 all-time) for his career.
Thomas currently plays in the NBA for the Sacramento Kings.
Brandon Roy (2002-2006) was one of my all time favorite Huskies, and one who continued his pro career in the northwest with the Portland Trail Blazers, Roy is the number 9 all-time leader in ppg for a season when he averaged 20.2 ppg.
Roy finished off his career at Washington with 14.3 ppg. His pro career was cut short this year by injury.
Quincy Pondexter (2007-2010) finished off his career with an overall ppg average of 13.1, including averaging 19.3 during the 09-10 season.
Pondexter is also ranked number five all-time for most double digit scoring games, with 75. He currently plays for the New Orleans Hornets.
Jon Brockman (2006-2009) averaged 13.8 ppg at Washington, and was the team captain during his freshman season. Brockman was also named to the Pac-10 all freshman team.
Jon Brockman currently plays for the Milwaukee Bucks.
Todd MacCulloch (1996-1999) currently still holds just about every single free throw percentage record, as well as shooting percentage. He is number two all time with eight career 30 pt games, as well as a plethora of records for rebounding, and blocks.
MacCulloch was selected by the Philadelphia 76ers in the 2nd round in 1999. His career came to an end in 2003.
So there you have it folks.
My all time Washington Huskies starting five. A team that would be a no brainer come selection Sunday!
