Washington Women post impressive comeback win

I don't think I am breaking into any new ground when I say that a 22-point lead in womens basketball is usually pretty concrete. Unless of course you're playing the Washington Huskies. During the Pac-12 Tournament on Thursday, UW rallied past Oregon in a historic win.

A normal player looks at a 22-point deficit and doubt creeps in, wondering if the game can be won. But Washington point guard Jazmine Davis isn't a normal player.

Teammate Kristi Kingma continued to tell her team they were OK despite last-placed Oregon shooting three-pointers to build an early lead in their Pac-12 women's basketball tournament opener on Thursday.

Davis believed her, taking over the second half to help UW win 69-62.

Fifth-seeded Washington (20-10) advanced to play No. 19 Colorado on Friday at 8:30 p.m. at KeyArena. The Huskies lost to the Buffaloes 68-61 in Boulder earlier this season.

Now Oregon was really terrible this year, and Colorado should be really good, but hey, a win is a win right?
