The Washington Huskies’ 87-76 result is certainly not as impressive as Thursday’s win against Cal on the surface.
However, when you consider that they were only allowing a conference-best 62.1 points per game nobody had scored more than 83 on them this season (Butler on December 18) the performance becomes more impressive.
And as Don Ruiz of The News Tribune writes, freshman guard Terrrence Ross helped them crack that 83 point barrier in impressive fashion.
Thomas leads UW to solid win over Stanford, 87-76
3:26 UW, 84-64. Huskies already have more points than anyone had scored on Stanford all season. (Previous high 83 by Butler.) The points that put UW over the top came on a putback throwdown by Terrence Ross.
Isaiah Thomas led the way for the Huskies with a team-high 22 points on 6-for-13 shooting. Thomas really broke the game open with a particularly impressive run late in the first half in which he scored 14 of his final tally. Once again it was Matthew Bryan-Amaning complementing Thomas with 15 points and six rebounds.
Jeremy Green once again carried Stanford offensively with a game-high 24 points and 12 rebounds while Anthony Brown chipped in 15 points.
