Huskies push by Stanford

New, 19 comments

Jon Brockman scored 20 points, Isaiah Thomas sparked a decisive second-half spurt with nine points and No. 13 Washington defeated Stanford 85-73 in the Pac-10 tournament quarterfinals Thursday.

The Huskies (25-7) will play 23rd-ranked Arizona State (23-8) in Friday's semifinals at Staples Center.

Anthony Goods scored 26 points after getting 23 in a win against Oregon State on Wednesday night for the Cardinal, who were sent packing a year after losing to UCLA in the title game.

Washington, the tournament's top seed for the first time, has won six in a row and nine of its last 10. The Huskies completed a three-game sweep of the Cardinal (18-13) by winning the teams' first meeting in the tournament since 2005.

Washington will face Arizona State next and the Sun Devils are going to have a problem with Washington's depth. The Huskies have beat them twice this season and will try for three in a row on Friday.

As far as seeding goes I think the best deal for UW is to be the #3 in Portland however winning two more games could push them to as high as #2 and send them to the Midwest.
