Jan. 30, 2010
SEATTLE (AP) - Quincy Pondexter had 29 points and 12 rebounds, recently ill Isaiah Thomas revived with 19 points while leading a runaway rally in the second half and Washington blew past cold, benched Klay Thompson and Washington State 92-64 on Saturday.
Thompson was the sixth-leading scorer in the nation at 22.3 points per game before he was late to the Cougars' team bus Friday to begin the cross-state trip to their rival. Former Huskies assistant Ken Bone then put Thompson on the bench to begin Saturday's game.
Thompson, who had started his first 53 games at Washington State, finished with seven points on Saturday, tying his season low. The sophomore didn't make his second field goal until 3:31 remained. Washington led 85-59 by then.
The Huskies outscored the Cougars 56-24 after halftime. Both teams are 14-7 overall and 4-5 in the Pac-10.
