March 12, 2009
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Jon Brockman scored 20 points, Isaiah Thomas sparked a decisive second-half spurt with nine points and No. 13 Washington defeated Stanford 85-73 in the Pac-10 tournament quarterfinals Thursday.
The Huskies (25-7) will play 23rd-ranked Arizona State (23-8) in Friday's semifinals at Staples Center.
Anthony Goods scored 26 points after getting 23 in a win against Oregon State on Wednesday night for the Cardinal, who were sent packing a year after losing to UCLA in the title game.
Washington, the tournament's top seed for the first time, has won six in a row and nine of its last 10. The Huskies completed a three-game sweep of the Cardinal (18-13) by winning the teams' first meeting in the tournament since 2005.
