Stanford's Upset Of Washington 'The Biggest Win Of Coach Johnny Dawkins' Tenure'

Prior to tonight’s win, Stanford coach Johnny Dawkins hadn’t beaten the Huskies in six tries.

So as Tom Fitzgerald of the San Francisco Chronicle notes, beating a Washington Huskies team that was expected to sail through the Pac-10 is quite a milestone for Dawkins’ career.

Stanford stuns Washington on Owens late basket
Stanford pulled off the biggest win of coach Johnny Dawkins’ three-year tenure, shocking Washington 58-56 Thursday night at Maples Pavilion on Josh Owens’ basket with 29 seconds left.

Dwight Powell’s tip-in gave Stanford a 55-53 lead with 1:44 left. Jeremy Green sank a free throw before a three by Scott Suggs knotted the score 56-56 with 1:09 left. Owens hit his tip-in, and UW’s Justin Holiday missed two free throws with 2.5 seconds left. Powell grabbed the rebound but was tied up and, thanks to the possession arrow, the Huskies had one last chance.


Stanford Cardinal Upset Washington Huskies, 58-56

This has not been an easy for the Washington Huskies basketball team off the court.

And a 58-56 road loss to the Stanford Cardinal didn't necessarily make it any easier.

They never really found the touch, although they did manage to hold the Cardinal to 34.6 percent shooting.

What might have done the Huskies in was the turnover differential: Washington turned the ball over more often in the second half and Stanford outscored them 8 to 3 in points off turnovers, despite not having any fast break points.

Forward Josh Owens led the way for Stanford, scoring a team-high14 points on 7-for-9 shooting, while forward Dwight Powell had 11 points and a team-high seven rebounds. Although Matthew Bryan-Amaning and Aziz N'Diaye combined for 18 rebounds, neither got involved offensively with Bryan-Amaning scoring eight points after seemingly coming into his own over the past few games.

Justin Holiday led the Huskies with 15 points while Isaiah Thomas had 14 points and seven assists.
