Washington Huskies Team History

The Huskies began their program prior to the 1895 season as an independent program. They joined the Pacific Coast Conference in the 1915 regular season and have remained with the conference throughout their existence as that was the year it was created. 

Since then, the conference has transformed into the Athletic Association of Western Conference (AAWU), Pac-8, Pac-10, and then the Pac-12. They are one of four teams that are currently members of the Pac-12 Conference after being members of the inaugural Pacific Coast Conference (California, Oregon State, Washington, Washington State).  

Key Stats

The Washington Huskies have been an average team as they are currently sixth in the Pac-12 with an 8-7 (3-2) record this year. The offense has not been the strongest as the Huskies are scoring 69.7 points (tied for 259th) and averaging just 10.1 assists per game (433rd in the sport). They cannot grab many rebounds as a team this season as they are tied for 383rd in NCAA with just 32.4 rebounds per game thus far. 

Senior guard Terrell Brown Jr has been leading the charge for the Huskies as he is playing 5.2 minutes and is averaging 21 points, four rebounds, four assists, 0.5 blocks, and 2.7 steals per game. 

If the offense can be a little better and they can lessen the 71.5 points allowed this year, they can have a quicker turnaround than a mediocre program.

Championships Won by the Team

The Huskies have not won a single NCAA Championship in their history, so instead, we will talk about the conference success by the Washington Huskies over time. The Huskies won their first conference during the 1930 season and did it again in 1933. 

Washington won back-to-back conference titles in 1942 and 1943 before winning the Pacific Coast Conference in 1947, 1950, and 1952. Shockingly, 1952 was the last time that the Washington Huskies were able to hold the conference championship.   

Important Team Events

The Huskies have not won a single NCAA Championship in their history, but they have made a single Final Four appearance. They faced off against the Kansas Jayhawks on March 17, 1953, in the Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City, Missouri. 

There was a lot of scoring in the first half, but Kansas controlled it as the Jayhawks were up 45-34 by halftime. The Huskies were unable to get a rhythm in the second half of the game as they were outscored 34-19, and the Kansas Jayhawks picked up a 79-53 victory over the Washington Huskies. 

Bob Houbergs led the Huskies with 18 points, while Joe Cipriano was the only other player to score double figures at 11 points. Their biggest issue was that they shot 19-of-62 (30.9 percent) from the floor and also missed 13 free-throw attempts. They still haven’t had a major appearance on March Madness.

Top Players

One of the most notable players is seven-foot center Chris Welp, who was a member of the Huskies from 1983 to 1986. He appeared in 129 games and averaged 16.1 points, 7.7 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.8 steals, and 1.4 blocks per game throughout his collegiate career. 

He was a three-time All-Pac-12 and the 1985 Pac-10 Rookie of the Year. Welp has scored the most points as he scored 2,073 career points while no other player has scored more than 1,880 points for Washington.  

Another impressive player was center Bob Houbregs, who played for Washington from 1950-1952, and in 91 career games, he averaged 195 points, 10.7 rebounds, and 1.4 assists per game since steals and blocks were not recorded at this point. 

Houbregs is a three-time All-Pac-12 and a two-time NCAA All-Region player. He finished with the most field goals (325), field goal attempts (604), total points scored (846), and points per game (25.6) during the 1952 regular season. 

Top Coaches

There have been 19 different head coaches for the Washington Huskies throughout the program’s existence, and none have been more associated with the school than Hec Edmundson. 

He was the coach for the Huskies from 1921-1947, and in those 27 seasons, he posted a 488-195 (.714 winning percentage), won four conference championships, and had an NCAA Tournament appearance in the 1942 season. 

Another important head coach of the Huskies was Tippy Dye, who coached for Washington from 1951-1959 and boasted a record of 156-91 (.632 winning percentage) as the man in charge. 

He managed to win a pair of conference championships with two berths into the NCAA Tournament. In one of those trips, the Huskies made it to the Final Four but were unable to advance to the National Championship Game, as we highlighted earlier. This would be the only Final Four appearance that the Washington Huskies have made it to as of this writing.
