Roy Career Night Leads Huskies to Victory Over UCLA
Feb. 5, 2005
SEATTLE, Wash.- Brandon Roy led Washington to a 82-70 win over Pac-10 rival UCLA on Saturday. Roy filled the stat sheet and led all Huskies with 20 points on six-13 shooting, a career-high 13 rebounds, and five assists. Other high scorers for Washington included Bobby Jones with 17 points, Nate Robinson with 16, and Tre Simmons with 11.
'Brandon had another double-double, a solid double-double,' exclaimed Washington Head Coach Lorenzo Romar. 'Our guys did a good job of finding him in positions where he was really effective, he really helped us out. Thirteen rebounds, twenty points and five assists is a heck of a night.'
On the offensive end it was a tale of two halves for Roy, who scored 16 of his 20 points in the second half. With 13:03 left in the game, Roy was fouled on a spinning lay-up on which he converted the free-throw to extend the Huskies lead to 12 points. Later, Roy would set up teammate Bobby Jones for a three-pointer from the left side to put the Huskies up 10 with 4:12 left to play. Washington never looked back, as they would hold the lead of at least eight points for the remainder of the game.
With the win, Washington (19-3, 9-2) remains tied for first place in the Pac-10 with Arizona as they extend their school-record home win streak to 14 wins. The Huskies travel to Oregon next week for a Thursday night match-up with the Ducks. They will return home for their final two home games of the season to take on Arizona State and Arizona, in what could be a weekend that determines who takes sole possession of first place in the Pac-10.
