That’s when Isaiah Thomas took over, scoring 10 of his game-high 22 points down the stretch. UW’s Justin Holiday held Klay Thompson to five points on 2-for-14 shooting.

Thomas started on fire, scoring or assisting on 15 of the first 19 points for Washington. He finished with 19 points, four assists and four rebounds. The Huskies also received 17 points from Justin Dentmon, 16 from Quincy Pondexter and 10 from Jon Brockman (above right) against a WSU defense that was the best in nation allowing 49 points per game. The win snapped a seven-game losing streak to the Cougars.

Epic battle in the Palouse. Neither team led by more than 10 points. Brockman (17 points and 11 rebounds) suffered an ankle injury in the second overtime and had to leave the game. Kyle Weaver scored a game-high 20 points for the Cougars. Derrick Low and Taylor Rochestie each had 16 while Robbie Cowgill added 10. Ryan Appleby (16 points) had a chance to tie the game at the end, but his long three-pointer at the buzzer missed.

Washington freshman Spencer Hawes was out with an ankle injury and the Huskies suffered the most lopsided defeat for a Romar team in Pullman. The Cougars took an early 17-8 lead and went into locker rooms ahead 34-23. They blew the game open with a 21-4 run to start the second half. Low scored a game-high 20 points and Weaver added 17. Pondexter led UW with 16 points off the bench and Brockman had 13.
Feb. 4, 2006 — Lost 77-64
This is when the tide began to turn in the inter-state rivalry. No. 15 Washington lost 78-71 earlier in the season to Washington and were swept in the season series for the first time since 1994. The Huskies led 35-30 at halftime, but the Cougars took over the game with an 11-0 run to begin the second half. UW wasted a 21-point, nine-rebound performance from Brandon Roy. Dentmon added 14 points and Bobby Jones 10. It was balanced scoring for WSU, which had four players score at least 10 points. Josh Akognon finished with 14 points and Aron Baynes had 13 points and 12 rebounds.
Feb. 19, 2005 — Win 68-55
No. 13 Washington controlled the first half and took a 34-17 lead into halftime before cruising to a 13-point victory. The Huskies were at the height of their powers. They won with a balanced attack and Roy coming off the bench to score 11 points. Trey Simmons led all scorers with 16 and Mike Jensen added 13. Weaver, then a freshman, came off the bench and led WSU with 15 points.
Jan. 24, 2004 — Win 75-62
This game started a four-game winning streak for the Huskies against their archrivals. It was also the second game after UW’s big 103-99 overtime win at Oregon State, which coach Lorenzo Romar calls a seminal moment in the growth of the program. After an 0-5 Pac-10 start, the Huskies finished the conference race with a 12-1 record. Nate Robinson scored a game-high 17 points, Will Conroy added 14 and Roy finished with nine points and 12 rebounds and Simmons had 10 points and nine rebounds.
March 1, 2003 — Lost 98-76
Washington State received 59 points from its bench, including four reserves who scored in double figures. Marcus Moore didn’t start, but he was the star while scoring a game-high 23 points. Roy also came off the bench and led UW with 17 points. The Cougars scored 49 points in both halves and led by 19 points at halftime.
