UW routs WSU, 92-64


If you watched, you saw what happened. The Cougars combined their worst defensive half of the season with an offense that became more and more selfish as the clock ran down. The result was a blowout, to say the least. UW outscored WSU 56-24 in the last 20 minutes. Quincy Pondexter, attacking from the high post against the Cougars’ 2-3 zone, led everyone with 29 points. But he wasn’t alone. Isaiah Thomas started stroking it from the outside in the second half and finished with 19. The Huskies got their fast break going – fueled by WSU missing consecutive shots to open the second half along with a handful of turnovers – and just kept pulling away. WSU went almost 7 minutes without a basket to open the half and trailed 55-42 (a 19-2 UW run) before DeAngelo Casto scored on a post move. Nik Koprivica had 13 points and 11 rebounds in his last Hec Ed appearance while Xavier Thames had a career-high 14 in his first. We’ll be back in a couple hours.
