PLAY OF THE GAME
Late in the first half, Robert Upshaw raced down the middle of the paint, received a pass from Mike Anderson and flushed a one-handed jam that brought the crowd of 5,289 at Alaska Airlines Arena to its feet. The basket gave Washington a 32-6 lead with 5:59 remaining.
Believe it or not, Grambling State had a lead. It was brief, but the Tigers were up 3-2 at the 17:20 mark. Four minutes later, the Huskies led by 10 (13-3) and the rout was on.
“We knew this was going to be an easy game,” – Kemp.
