Huskies Earn 78-67 Win Over Oregon
SEATTLE, WASH. – The Washington men's basketball team dominated against Oregon in the rivalry match-up game, winning 78-67.
Terrell Brown Jr. came out firing on all cylinders, scoring the Huskies (15-14, 10-9) first eight points. He had 25 on the night. Emmitt Matthews Jr. also contributed 25 for UW.
The Ducks (18-12, 11-8) couldn't get their offense going due to the Dawgs disruptive zone defense.
To begin the second period, Washington went on an eight-point, unanswered, run. A dunk from Nate Roberts put the Huskies up 21 and forced an Oregon timeout that brought Alaska Airlines Arena to their feet.
Roberts had a big night for the Dawgs, putting up a career-high 18 points and 16 rebounds.
