Huskies Blow Out Arizona State In Wire-To-Wire Victory

Feb 10, 2022

SEATTLE -- The Washington men's basketball team dominated Arizona State on Thursday night, winning its fifth straight home game by a final score 87-64 -- marking the program's biggest win over the Sun Devils since 2010. 

It was a balanced team effort that saw four Huskies in double-figures and 14 total players take the floor. 

Terrell Brown Jr. got the scoring started with a jumper on the first possession of the game. 

That would set the tone for the rest of the half, as the Huskies got out to a 21-9 lead after nine minutes of play. 

The UW defense made things incredibly difficult on the Sun Devils, who opened the game just 3-18 from the field and didn't pick up an assist until under the 11-minute mark.

Brown Jr. would extend his streak of double-digit scoring in all 22 games this season with an and-1 with 7:15 remaining in the half. 

Washington would lead by as many 20 points in the first half at 39-19 and went into the locker room with a 42-32 lead thanks to a Nate Roberts dunk right before the horn. 

The Huskies would continue to drain shots in the second half, shooting 50% from three in the final 20 minutes of action. 

PJ Fuller was at the heart of it all, as he did not miss a shot from the field in the half en route to 16 total points (13 in the second half). 

Riley Sorn helped UW keep the Sun Devils at a distance providing great energy as well as 6 points on 3-3 shooting, 5 rebounds and a blocked shot off the bench. 

As a team, Washington shot 53.8% from the field to go with 19 rebounds in the second half to pull away and win comfortably by a score of 87-64. 

Terrell Brown Jr. finished with 19 points and eight assists -- just one shy of his UW high. Emmitt Matthews Jr. tied a career high with four made threes on his way to 15 total points, while Cole Bajema rounded out the Huskies in double figures with 12 points and a career-high four steals.
