No. 22 Washington Defeats San Francisco for 1,600th Win
Dec. 27, 2009
SEATTLE (AP) - Quincy Pondexter scored 22 points and No. 22 Washington started slowly, briefly gave away a big lead, then cruised to an 86-71 victory over San Francisco on Sunday.
Matthew Bryan-Amaning added 13 points and six rebounds for the Huskies (9-2), who were coming off a surreal victory over No. 19 Texas A&M on Tuesday night in which Aggies senior Derrick Roland broke his right leg.
Pondexter and Washington coach Lorenzo Romar spent Wednesday visiting Roland in the hospital, where he had surgery to repair multiple fractures sustained in a grotesque, on-court fall.
On Sunday, Washington's only senior had his eighth 20-point game of the season in helping the Huskies become the 16th team in NCAA history to win 1,600 games.
Rashad Green and Moustapha Diarra each scored 14 points for San Francisco (4-10), which lost for the 10th time in 12 games.
