Washington won a very physical game tonight by pulling it out at the end against a very good Stanford squad. Both teams played tough all night but the difference was the way Washington hit the boards. The blue collar Huskies lead the nation in rebounding margin. UW out-rebounded the Cardinal 41-25 last night.
Jon Brockman scored 19 points, including the game-winning put-back with 4.6 seconds remaining after his 18th rebound for his only field goal after halftime, and surging Washington beat Stanford 84-83 on Thursday night.
Isaiah Thomas added 18 points for the Huskies who rallied from eight points down early in the second half for their ninth consecutive victory. Matthew Bryan-Amaning had another strong game coming off the bench to add 17 points.
Next up for Washington is California on Saturday at Hec Edmundson Pavillion. The Golden Bears slipped by Washington State 57-50 last night for their eight straight win.
