When Perris Blackwell decided to sit out a year and transfer from San Francisco to the University of Washington, it’s unlikely he expected to miss the NCAA Tournament while watching his former team make a stronger case for themselves than he and his Huskies teammates. Still, the 6-foot-9 forward has taken a lot from his senior season.

When asked about the team’s early-season road woes and how the Huskies bounced back a bit away from home, Blackwell told 1090 The Fan that “I just think it was just getting back to playing defense and playing together and everybody just doing what they do and playing their role and everybody just sticking to that … just doing what coach asked.”

That suggests the team took a little while to realize what they were as a team and who they were and were not individually.

Blackwell also opines on his former team, the leadership of C.J. Wilcox and the rest of the season for Lorenzo Romar’s Dawgs. Check out the interview in its entirety:
