Hawes Returns to Starting Five to Lead Huskies Past No. 25 Stanford
Feb. 11, 2007
Hawes started for the first time in seven games and outscored plodding Stanford 8-4 during the first 10 minutes of the second half, when the Cardinal made just one of their first eight shots. He also finished with seven rebounds.
Washington (16-8, 6-7 Pac-10) kept its flickering NCAA tournament hopes alive by winning for the fifth time in six games. The Huskies have won nine of their last 10 home games against ranked teams.
Stanford's Lawrence Hill scored 15 points after missing all 10 of his shots in Thursday night's loss at No. 14 Washington State. It wasn't enough, as the Cardinal (15-8, 7-5) lost for the third time in four games since beating then-No. 3 UCLA.
Hill missed his first three shots during the first 14 minutes of the second half, when the game turned. Washington held Stanford to six points over that span, and Hawes scored 10 points as the Huskies took a 54-38 lead.
