Barrage of treys fells trees

Led by Brandon Roy's 23 points and 18 more from Mike Jensen, Washington gunned down the Stanford Cardinal 75-57 in front of a packed house at Hec-Edmundson Pavilion this evening.

Roy went 8 of 8 from the foul line and scored over 20 points for the fifth straight game. Jensen did all of his damage from beyond the three point line, and his 18 was a career high for the senior from Kent. Jamaal Williams added 10 points and 7 boards

The visitors from Palo Alto were led by the 10 points of Matt Haryasz and Peter Prowitt. Chris Hernandez only had nine on an off-shooting night, while Dan Grunfeld played but two minutes as he fought the flu.
FIRST HALF: - Jensen opened up red hot. He hit his first shot, a three, and then had a nifty assist on a Roy lay-in. Then buried another trey to give the Huskies an early 8-2 lead. Stanford came clawing back and were able to take a brief lead, but the Huskies again pulled out with back to back treys by Joel Smith and yet another long bomb from beyond the arc by Jensen to push the Dawgs on top 24-14 with 7:30 to play in the half. When Bobby Jones drove from the top of the key and threw down a jam while getting hacked, the Huskies led by 14. He converted the free throw to make it 39-24 with 2:00 left. Stanford scored the final four points to close the gap to 11.

Jensen was five of seven from three-point range for 15 points to lead the Dawgs at the break. Chris Hernandez, normally the Cardinal offensive catalyst, missed his first six shots from the field. The Husky defense was stifling as every Stanford shot was contested.
SECOND HALF: - The Husky defense continued to be tough as the Cardinal kept turning the ball over. Washington stayed comfortably on top as Stanford was never able to threaten the Dawgs. Brandon Roy and Jamaal Williams carried the load offensively, as Roy scored from everywhere on the floor and Williams pounded the inside. Washington pushed the lead out to 20 in the final two minutes before garage time.

Washington shot 46% from the field and a blistering 56% from three-point range, while Stanford was only able to connect on 36% of their shots, only hitting two three-pointers.

Washington has now won five straight, (21-5, 10-5), and will next host the first place California Bears on Saturday afternoon at Bank of America Area.
