73-64 Husky win (8-2)
The Huskies were able to hang with A&M through the first half despite Isaiah Thomas struggling. He didn't score at all in the first half and really didn't get on track in the second either. Yet again, Quincy Pondexter was the team's rock and was the best player on the floor for either team from buzzer to buzzer. The game remained close until Derrick Roland suffered a horrendous leg injury, which delayed the game for around 10 minutes and had both teams shaken. The Huskies however were the beneficiaries, as A&M players were off their game after that point and UW was able to pull away.
