Feb. 1, 2007
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Jon Brockman scored 15 points and grabbed 12 rebounds as Washington beat Arizona State 66-61 Thursday night, dealing the Sun Devils their 11th consecutive loss.
The Huskies (14-7, 4-6 Pac-10) won their first conference road game of the season and notched their ninth consecutive victory over Arizona State (6-15, 0-10).
Christian Polk scored 18 points to lead the Sun Devils, who played the last 13:16 without head coach Herb Sendek.
Sendek was ejected after being assessed two technical fouls following a call against the Sun Devils on a loose ball. Associate head coach Mark Phelps ran the team for the rest of the game.
Ryan Appleby made all four of the free throws, but Arizona State scored the next eight points to get within 54-46 with 9:39 remaining.
Polk later hit two straight jumpers and Jeff Pendergraph and Allen Morill each made two free throws to cut the Sun Devils' deficit to 61-58 with 1:14 left.
But Justin Dentmon hit a basket and then made two free throws with 24 seconds left to help secure the win for Washington, which came into the game 0-6 on the road this season.
Appleby finished with 13 points, hitting 3-of-6 from outside the 3-point line. Dentmon and Spencer Hawes each added 13 points for the Huskies.
