Justin Dentmon was on fire for the second night in a row. Dentmon hit four 3-pointers and scored a career-high 30 points, freshman Isaiah Thomas added 25 and No. 23 Washington handed No. 14 Arizona State its second straight home defeat, 84-71 on Saturday.

Dentmon's scoring outburst came after he made seven of 12 3-pointers and scored 23 points in the Huskies' 106-97 loss at Arizona on Thursday.

"It feels like every shot I shoot is going in," Dentmon said. "My confidence is high."

Washington led 41-29 at halftime, the most points Arizona State had given up in a first half this season. The Huskies built that lead to as many as 19 in the second half.

Washington center Jon Brockman had 10 points, and his 5-footer in the lane gave Washington its biggest lead, 54-35, with 15:25 remaining.

One of the biggest keys to the game was Washington's double team defense on ASU's James Harden who was held to only 15 points. He was only 1-2 in the fisrt half as Washington shut him down most of the night.

Next up for Washington is a trip to the Bay Area next weekend.
