Brockman Leads Huskies to Second Straight Win
Jan. 19, 2008
SEATTLE (AP) - Jon Brockman scored 26 points and grabbed 14 rebounds Saturday as he collected his 12th double-double of the season in Washington's 83-74 victory over Oregon State.
Brockman's double-double total leads the Pacific-10 Conference.
Matt Bryan-Amaning and Quincy Pondexter added 12 points apiece for the Huskies (11-7, 2-3 Pac-10), who won their second straight after an 0-3 start in conference play.
Calvin Hampton, who came in averaging just two points per game, led Oregon State (6-12, 0-6) with 16. Marcel Jones and Omari Johnson added 12 points apiece.
The Beavers have lost eight in a row, their last win coming Dec. 19 in a non-conference game against Northern Colorado.
Brockman factored into every point of a 9-2 run that took Washington from 65-64 down with 3:11 left to 73-67 up with 1:16 to play. He hit Pondexter for a lay-in and a 66-65 lead at the 2:55 mark. Brockman laid one with 2:12 left for a 68-65 edge.
After Oregon State?s Rickey Claitt banked one in to make it 68-67, Brockman converted a three-point play at the 1:47 mark for a 71-67 Washington lead. Brockman then stole the ball in backcourt and fed Venoy Overton for a driving lay-in, pushing the Huskies' lead to 73-67 with 1:16 to go.
The Beavers never got closer than four the rest of the way.
Despite some cold shooting to start each half, Washington wound up hitting 48 percent from the field (31 of 64). Oregon State shot just 41 percent (27 of 65).
