HUSKIES WIN 82-50 — UW got this one easily and now it’s on to Pac-10 play. Brockman led the stats with 21 and 10, his fourth straight double-double. Dentmon returned and played a lot at the end so he looks okay. Everybody played and everyone but Justin Holiday scored, so a good day all around for the Huskies as they shot 51.9 percent and lost just 10 turnovers and won this one with the dominance you would expect.
HUSKIES BLOWING IT OPEN — UW has opened the half with a 13-3 run, the only ISU points on a banked-in three-pointer, and it’s now 52-28 Huskies. So not much left to say about this one — and seeing no comments and it being New Year’s Eve, sensing everyone’s ready to move on. I’ll wrap it up at the end and pass along any other notes that come to mind but we may get out of here quickly tonight, as well.
DENTMON LIMPING — One thing forgot to mention is that Justin Dentmon left the game late in the first half limping to the bench, and he’s still limping as he comes out for second half warmups. He’s looking like he’s ready to play, going through the layup line and all, but he’s visibly hurting, so we’ll see what it is.
HUSKIES UP 39-25 AT HALFTIME — This one is going about as expected. A few brief lapses, but UW has pulled to a comfortable lead and there seems little reason to think things are going to change. ISU hit just one of its first nine shots as UW built a 10-2 lead and UW has been ahead ever since.
Jon Brockman and Tim Morris each have 10 for UW and Morris has probably been the player of the first half. He has hit 4-4 shots, 2-2 three-pointers, also has five rebounds and has played good defense on ISU’s best player, 6-6 guard Matt Stucki, who has just three points on 1-5 shooting (though he does have a game-high four assists).
Venoy Overton has 7 for UW off the bench and no one else has more than four. Quincy Pondexter is scoreless in nine minutes and is 0-1 on the floor having not been able yet to carry over the momentum from the LSU game, though he does have two assists and has been active on defense.
Every Husky has played except for Joe Wolfinger.
LINEUP THE SAME — Lorenzo Romar apparently doesn’t want to mess with a good thing so he is sticking with the same starting lineup for this game with Wallace, Brockman, Appleby, Smith and Morris.
PRE-GAME — It’s an hour before tipoff of a game that may turn out to be as forgettable as any the Huskies play this season. On New Year’s Eve against a bad team and with the Pac-10 on the horizon this feels like one just to get through.
That’s a little bit of what I wrote about in my preview story today.
This game is live on FSN today so this is one you can actually watch.
