Huskies back in the hunt

first_imgWashington (16-8, 6-7 Pacific-10 Conference) kept its flickering NCAA Tournament hopes alive by winning for the fifth time in six games. The Huskies have won nine of their past 10 home games against ranked teams. “I think we’ve put ourselves within striking distance. Before, we were just trying to dig ourselves out of a hole,” Washington coach Lorenzo Romar said. “We’ve almost dug ourselves out.” The Cardinal (15-8, 7-5) lost for the third time in four games since beating then-No. 3 UCLA. SEATTLE – Spencer Hawes scored 18 points and Jon Brockman added 14 points and 10rebounds as Washington defeated No. 25 Stanford 64-52 Sunday. Hawes started for the first time in seven games and outscored plodding Stanford 8-4 during the first 10 minutes of the second half, when the Cardinal made just one of their its eight shots. He also finished with seven rebounds. Hawes fouled out after just six points in 29 inconsequential minutes the last time the teams played – a 78-77 loss by Washington on Jan. 11. “It’s like two different people,” Hawes said. “I feel refreshed. My energy’s back.” center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!last_img read more
