UW 75 Arizona 66

A really great game tonight as Washington gave Arizona everything they could handle enroute to a big win which keeps the Huskies slim postseason hopes alive. After the way the Wildcat's dominated the Huskies earlier this season in Tucson you can chalk this up as a very big win for the improving Huskies. UW hit 20-26 free throws in the second half after a 4-14 start. Venoy Overton had career performance from the field and the line scoring 19 points. Jon Brockman had another monster night as he chipped in with 15 points and 15 rebounds. Quincy Pondexter added 9 from the bench. Ryan Appleby cooled off going 2 for 10 from the field, but hit two three pointers to become the all time Husky three point king. The key to the game was the Husky defense which held the Wildcats to 39% shooting from the field. UW took it to Arizona once the Wildcats got in foul trouble, and it was nice to see the Huskies asserting themselves rather than reacting to their opponent for a change.

Next up is Arizona State which went down in Pullman tonight 59-47.
