PLAY OF THE GAME
With 7:55 remaining Jordan Baker, a 6-4 guard, drove down the middle of the lane and had a clear path to the basket. However, 6-11 center Robert Upshaw greeted him at the rim and sent his layup attempt the other way. It was the seventh block for the Husky big man, which tied a Washington record. It was also the third time this season he’s had three blocks in a game.
The Huskies led 12-7 at the 11:07 mark when they used a 14-2 run over the next four minutes to surge ahead 26-9 with 7:16 left in the first half. Dorsey drained two three-pointers during the spurt. San Jose State never got closer than 10 points the rest of the way.
