Feb. 18, 2006
CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) - Brandon Roy scored 25 points and had nine assists and 20th-ranked Washington won its fourth straight with a 96-63 rout of Oregon State on Saturday night.
The Huskies (20-5, 9-5 Pacific 10) have their first consecutive 20-win seasons since 1984-85.
Roy's layup and free throw capped a 12-2 run that put Washington ahead 79-54 midway through the second half as the game slid out of reach for Oregon State.
The Gill Coliseum crowd of 9,512 started filing out when Brandon Burmeister's layup made it 87-56 for the Huskies, who shot 53.6 percent from the floor.
Coming off a 75-72 victory at Oregon on Thursday, Washington is 4-3 in conference games on the road.
Sasa Cuic had 17 points for the Beavers (11-15, 4-11), who have lost seven of their last nine games since losing senior point guard Lamar Hurd to a groin injury.
Oregon State was coming off their second conference win at home, a 71-62 victory Thursday over Washington State. That win snapped a six-game losing streak.
The Beavers kept it close for much of the first half and scored 11 straight points, including Chris Stephens' layup and four straight free throws from Marcel Jones and Wesley Washington to tie it at 20.
But Oregon State, which shot 43.8 percent from the floor, couldn't take over the lead and the Huskies pulled away with an 11-3 run that made it 37-29 on Jamaal Williams' dunk.
Roy's jumper made it 44-34 and Washington went on to lead 44-37 at the break.
