No. 17 Huskies Upend No. 12 Tigers, 88-72

Dec. 21, 2006

SEATTLE (AP) -Spencer Hawes, Washington's heralded freshman center dominated preseason All-American Glen Davis with 23 points and 12 rebounds - both season highs - and led the 17th-ranked Huskies to an 88-72 runaway victory over No. 12 LSU on Wednesday night.

Hawes, a high school All-America last season from Seattle who turned down North Carolina to stay home, was 10-for-16 from the field, shooting fadeaways, hook shots, jumpers and spinners - most against the bewildered Davis.

Jon Brockman added 19 points and 14 rebounds for Washington (9-1), which won its 26th consecutive nonconference home game while hosting an SEC team for the first time since 1985.

Davis scored eight points on 3-for-11 shooting, ending a streak of 48 consecutive games of scoring in double figures. He and Brockman traded elbows and jersey grabs for much of Davis' lowest-scoring game since he had eight points at Mississippi as a freshman two seasons ago.

Last season's SEC player of the year went 21:24 between his first field goal and a putback with 7:56 left that cut Washington's lead to 77-56.

Tasmin Mitchell scored 20 points for LSU (6-2), which dropped to 1-2 against ranked teams this season.
