Per The University of Washington Press Release…
SEATTLE (AP) – Keion Brooks Jr. scored 20 points, PJ Fuller added 10 points, and Washington pulled away for a 69-52 win over Weber State on Monday night in the season opener for both teams.
Brooks appeared more than capable of taking on the scoring load that was vacated with the graduation of Terrell Brown Jr., who was the top scorer in the Pac-12 last season. Brooks hit 6 of 15 shots and grabbed seven rebounds.
Washington used a pair of big runs to build an advantage the Wildcats couldn’t overcome. The Huskies closed the first half on a 15-1 run and took a 31-23 lead at the break as Weber State missed its final 12 shot attempts of the half.
Midway through the second half, Washington used an 8-0 spurt to build an 11-point lead after the Wildcats had pulled within 41-38. The run was capped by a big block from center Franck Kepnang and Cole Bajema’s ensuing 3-pointer.
Bajema and Jamal Bey both added nine points for Washington.
Keith Dinwiddie Jr. led Weber State with 14 points, 12 coming in the first half. Steven Verplancken Jr. added 12 points for the Wildcats.
Up next the Huskies host North Florida on Friday at 8:00 p.m. at Alaska Airlines Arena.
