UW gets past Idaho 87-66

Freshman Quincy Pondexter scored a season-high 25 points to lead Washington to an 87-66 victory over outmanned Idaho on Wednesday night. Ryan Appleby had 11 points off the bench and was the only other Washington player to score in double figures. Jon Brockman had a career-high 14 rebounds, and Spencer Hawes added 9 for the much taller Huskies. Quincy was 9-for-14 from the field in his third 20-point game in six starts. He scored eight of Washington's first 11 points of the second half, including consecutive 3-pointers.

Washington started slow once again as they missed 20 of their first 28 shots, part of the reason Idaho led by three points four times in the first half. The Huskies still haven't jelled on the offensive end and the young team is still experiencing some growing pains as they near the meat of the non conference schedule which includes Gonzaga, LSU, and Pittsburg. UW could just be looking ahead at this point since the level of competition has been weak in the early going.
