Jones Helps Lead Huskies Over Ducks
Jan. 13, 2005
SEATTLE, Wash- Bobby Jones led the Washington Huskies to a 77-56 win over the Oregon Ducks on Thursday night. In a game that featured four Huskies in double figures, Jones filled the stat sheet and was the leading scorer for Washington with 15 points, four rebounds, four assists, and three steals. Other high scorers included Tre Simmons with 15, Nate Robinson with 14 and Jamal Williams with 14.
Jones helped the Huskies get off to a quick start with a steal in the first 56 seconds of the first half and a fast-break dunk to finish the play and give Washington their first two points of the game. The Huskies would keep the pace early, getting out to a 19-three lead with 12:34 left to play in the first half.
'Our guys are like kids, you know them,' said Head Coach Lorenzo Romar. 'You can see sometimes when they're ready to play and sometimes when they're not. You could just see in the opening parts of the game that Bobby had his energy with him and he was going to bounce back from the last game. He played at a high level. Overall he was just aggressive.'
Jones would remain silent for the remainder of the first half, but he came out fast again after halftime banking a three-pointer 1:12 into the second half off a Will Conroy assist. Jones would add 13-second half points to help close the game for Washington. Jones ended the game shooting four-for-nine from the field, including two-for-three from the three-point line and a perfect five-for-five from the free-throw line.
With the win, Washington moves to 14-2 on the year and 4-1 in Pac-10 play. The Huskies will host the Oregon State Beavers at Bank of America Arena on Saturday (7:00 p.m.).
