It was another special season for Washington women’s basketball, as the Huskies had a joy-filled journey on Montlake and beyond.

OFF TO AN HISTORIC START

The Huskies got off to an historic start to the season.

  • Going 11-0 to start the season tied UW’s best start to a season in program history, the last and only other time being the 1976-77 season.
  • 11 wins in a row tied for the 3rd-longest win streak in program history. The last time UW went 11-0 was the 2016-17 season.

DAWGS IN THE RANKINGS

Washington earned a spot in the Associated Press weekly poll.


  • Being ranked No. 23 in the AP Top 25 (released 12.18.23) was UW’s first AP ranking since the final poll of the 2016-17 season.

AGAINST TOP-25 OPPONENTS

The Huskies put up a lot of fight all season, and put the nation on notice with big wins against ranked opponents, all when the Huskies were un-ranked.

  • UW had four wins over AP-ranked opponents, three of which were on the road.
  • The last time UW had four wins over AP-ranked opponents was the 2016-17 season. The last time the Huskies did so during the regular season was the 1997-98 season. 
  • When the Huskies got their second true road win over an AP ranked opponent this past season, it was the first time since the 1994-95 season the Huskies had two ranked road wins in the regular season.
  • This season was the first in program history that UW won three games on the road at ranked opponents.
  • The win vs. No. 9 Oregon State marked UW beating an AP Top-10 opponent for the second-straight season, making it the first time defeating a Top-10 opponent in consecutive seasons since 2016-17.
  • The 10-point win over No. 9 Oregon State was the first double-digit win over a ranked opponent since 2014. The Huskies went on to have another double-digit win over a ranked opponent at No. 18 Utah by 15 points.

IT’S A SWEEP

Washington defeated both Oregon and Oregon State for the second consecutive season.

  • UW swept the Oregon schools at home in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 2007-08.
  • The sweep of the Oregon schools was the first completed sweep (home or away) in consecutive seasons since 2016-17.
