Multiple Huskies made contributions as the Huskies cruised to a 88-65 victory over Saint Martin's in the UW's exhibition game at Alaska Airlines Arena on Tuesday night.

Six huskies finished with double digit points, led by Shawn Kemp Jr., who finished 8-10 from the field for 19 points and two rebounds in 20 minutes.

Kemp teamed up with Jernard Jarreau and Robert Upshaw as the trio combined for 20 points and eight rebounds and the Huskies took a 44-27 lead into the half. Upshaw entered the game off the bench and provided five points, five rebounds and a block in the first half, including a alley-oop dunk that was arguably the best play of the night.

Upshaw finished with seven points and nine rebounds and Jarreau tallied four points and five rebounds.

In the second half it was the guards who stepped up for the Huskies. Andrew Andrews scored nine of his 13 points in the second half and finished 3-8 from the field with one 3-pointer and 6-8 from the free throw line.

Quevyn Winters knocked down three 3-pointers in his debut with the Huskies and finished with 10 points and six rebounds, and Darin Johnson finished with 10 points, seven of which came from the free throw line. Freshman Donaven Dorsey showed well in his first collegiate game, finishing 4-7 from the field for 11 points in 13 minutes.

Nigel Williams-Goss played the most minutes (27) for the Huskies on Thursday, and while he didn't shoot well-finishing 4-13 - he still managed to score 10 points and dish out nine assists.

The Huskies finished the game 29-64 (45.3%) from the field and 5-21 (23.8%) on three pointers. The Huskies shot 14-17 from the free throw line in the first half but finished the game 25-40.

Tyler Copp finished with 14 points to lead all scorers for Saint Martin's
