Dawgs take apart Oregon St in the second half

Washington and Oregon State are playing a pretty even first half at Hec Ed this afternoon. It's knotted at 33 with around 3 minutes left in the first half. Spencer Hawes has only played 3 minutes in the first half as his virus, and ankle could be bothering him. Look for more of him in the second half when the Huskies need to put this one away. Washington goes on a 8-1 run to jump out to a 39-34 lead with about a minute left, but the Beavers go on a little run of their own to keep it close. Huskies lead 41-38 at the break. Dentmon leads the Dawg's with 14, followed by Brockman with 12, and Nelson at 10.

16:06 left in the second half, and the Huskies have a 54-43 lead. Spencer Hawes has returned to the game as the Dawg's would like to put it away early. Pondexter is warming up after a cool first half. Brockman leads all scorers with 19. 58-45 Washington with 14:40 left. Hawes came in and made a three point play. UW is going to stretch it out now. Too much muscle in their for the Beaver's. 8:14 left in the game and Washington leads 79-54. Brockman has 25 points so far on the night. Pretty complete game for the sophmore from Snohomish.

The Huskies are up to 87-65 with 2:48 and this one has evolved into garbage time for the Dawg's. Artem Wallace has played well tonight flanked by Brockman. Those two give the Huskies a couple of bruisers inside. The story continue's to be the improved play of Dentmon.

Nice, and needed sweep for the Huskies who head back out on the road against the Arizona schools this coming week. The Huskies need at least a split next week, but a win over the Wildcats on the road would be something and would be payback for the loss at home earlier this season. Hawes, and Joel Smith should be back in the lineup, and that should help quite a bit. Smith will really help out with perimeter defense.
