The Washington Huskies never trailed on Thursday night against the Seattle Redhawks, grabbing a wire-to-wire 87-74 victory at KeyArena.

The Huskies jumped out to an early lead, and subsequently blew the game wide open with a 14-0 run in the latter stages of the first half. Scott Suggs scored six of his 24 points during the run, which saw Washington turn a 26-16 lead into a 40-16 beat down.

The margin would get as large as 27 before the Redhawks made a slight comeback effort early in the second half, trimming their deficit to 13. However, that's the closest Seattle would get the rest of the night.

Washington was dominant offensively all night long, shooting 53.4 percent from the field and getting to the line 27 times. The Huskies also made a killing on the glass, winning the rebounding battle, 40-27.

To go along with Suggs' 24 points, both Aziz N'Diaye and Desmond Simmons notched double-doubles for Washington. All five Huskies starters scored in double figures.

Chad Rasmussen enjoyed a nice game for Seattle in the loss, scoring 19 points on 7-of-12 shooting overall and going 5 for 8 from three-point land.
