Wahington Rolls Over Idaho State, 82-50
Dec. 31, 2007
SEATTLE (AP) -- Jon Brockman scored 21 points and collected 11 rebounds Monday as the Washington Huskies rolled to a 82-50 victory over Idaho State.
Brockman, just chosen as the Pacific-10 Player of the Week for the second time this season, got seven of those points during a 13-3 run to start the second half, helping Washington (9-4) expand a 14-point halftime lead to 24 with 16:31 to play.
His double-double was his eighth in 13 games this season.
Amorrow Morgan was the only player for Idaho State (3-10) in double figures, finishing with 13 points. Chrom Tatum added nine for the Bengals. Matt Stucki, who leads Idaho State with a 12.2 scoring average, was limited to just three points on 1-of-6 shooting.
The Huskies concluded non-conference play on a five-game winning streak, which included a come-from-behind 73-65 win at Louisiana State last Saturday. They begin their Pacific-10 schedule at home on Saturday against Washington State.
Idaho State has lost five of its last six heading into the start of its Big Sky Conference schedule on Thursday at Northern Colorado.
Washington never trailed Monday, and the game was tied just once, at 2-2 in the early going. The Huskies snapped that deadlock with an 8-0 run, and Idaho State never got closer than four points the rest of the way.
The Huskies, who came in hitting less than 40 percent from 3-point range, shot at a 45 percent clip from behind the arc during the first half. For the game, Washington hit 11 of 23 from long range, or 48 percent.
Washington went on a 9-2 run to close the first half.
