Entertaining first half

If probably a little bit nerve-wracking for UW fans.
The Huskies have led almost all the way, but have never been able to get the lead above five, with Stanford making just enough three-pointers (3-8) to offset UW’s four-point edge at the free throw line.
Spencer Hawes indeed started and looked like he was on his way to his best game in weeks in the first two minutes when he scored the first two points and then had assists that led to four more.
But strangely, the ball never seemed to really find its way into Hawes’ hands all that much the rest of the way — he didn’t score again until the final four minutes despite being on the floor most of the way (he played 15 minutes).
Brandon Burmeister has played eight minutes and has five key points.
This looks like a game that will come down to foul trouble and free throws, one reason both coaches have been on the refs from the start. Every foul figures to be precious.
