GAME REPORT – No. 13 Washington 66, Tulane 57

PLAYER OF THE GAME –Robert Upshaw finished with 11 points on 3-for-6 shooting and 10 rebounds for the second double double of his  career. He also had six blocks.

PLAY OF THE GAME – Jernard Jarreau blocked a shot from Louis Dabney that started a Washington fast break. Mike Anderson collected the loose ball and sprinted the other way down the right side of the court. He spotted Shawn Kemp Jr. on the other side of the lane and lofted a pass at the rim. Kemp leaped high and threw down the alley-oop dunk to put the Huskies ahead 43-37 with 11:06 left.

TURNING POINT –The Huskies trailed46-43 with 8:53 left and used a 14-3 run during a four-minute stretch to take control of the game. Anderson collected a steal and Williams-Goss finished the play with a layup that put UW on top 57-49 with 4:35 left.

QUOTABLE – “We know that we didn’t play with the mental focus that we needed to. Some of our intensity wavered up and down throughout the game. We had stretches where we weren’t ourselves on defense.” – Williams-Goss.

BY THE NUMBERS:

0 – Three-pointers by Washington in the first half.

6 – Blocks by Upshaw. The sophomore center has 51 for the season and moved into seventh place past Todd MacCulloch on Washington’s single-season blocks list.

18 – Washington turnovers. It’s a season high.
