Per The University of Washington Press Release…
SEATTLE — The Washington men’s basketball team dominated Arizona State on Thursday night, winning its fifth straight home game by a final score 87-64 — marking the program’s biggest win over the Sun Devils since 2010.
It was a balanced team effort that saw four Huskies in double-figures and 14 total players take the floor.
Terrell Brown Jr. got the scoring started with a jumper on the first possession of the game.
That would set the tone for the rest of the half, as the Huskies got out to a 21-9 lead after nine minutes of play.
The UW defense made things incredibly difficult on the Sun Devils, who opened the game just 3-18 from the field and didn’t pick up an assist until under the 11-minute mark.
Brown Jr. would extend his streak of double-digit scoring in all 22 games this season with an and-1 with 7:15 remaining in the half.
Washington would lead by as many 20 points in the first half at 39-19 and went into the locker room with a 42-32 lead thanks to a Nate Roberts dunk right before the horn.
The Huskies would continue to drain shots in the second half, shooting 50% from three in the final 20 minutes of action.
Terrell Brown Jr. finished with 19 points and eight assists — just one shy of his UW high. Emmitt Matthews Jr. tied a career-high with four made threes on his way to 15 total points, while Cole Bajema rounded out the Huskies in double figures with 12 points and a career-high four steals.
Washington faces #4 Arizona on Saturday at 3:00 p.m. in front of the home crowd again.
