Bruins Hold of Washington, 85-76

Feb. 19, 2009

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Josh Shipp scored 20 points and No. 20 UCLA held off 22nd-ranked Washington 85-76 Thursday night to move into a second-place tie in the Pac-10, a half-game behind the first-place Huskies.

Darren Collison added 17 points, Nikola Dragovic 15, and Alfred Aboya had 13 points and 11 rebounds for the Bruins, who kept alive their bid for a fourth consecutive league title.

Washington's Justin Dentmon scored 22 points and Jon Brockman had 16 points and 14 rebounds for his 55th career double-double, most among college basketball's active players. Isaiah Thomas and Quincy Pondexter added 12 points each.

The Bruins (20-6, 9-4 Pac-10) were coming off back-to-back road losses last week in Arizona, and wanted to avoid their first three-game losing streak since 2005, when they were beaten by Arizona, Stanford and California in coach Ben Howland's second season.
