Thursday, February 23, 2006
Bank of America Arena/Seattle, Wash.
o Brandon Roy contributed 23 points Thursday. That marks the eighth consecutive game that Roy has poured in at least 20 points for Washington and the 14th time overall this season.
o Mike Jensen scored a career-high 18 points by shooting 6-of-8 from behind the three-point line in the game. His previous-best was 17. With the performance, Jensen became the ninth Husky player to make six or more three-pointers in a game. Before Thursday, Jensen's career-high for made three-pointers was three, done three times. He last did it at Oregon State this season (2/18/06).
o The Dawgs were 8-of-13 in the first half on three-point attempts. They cooled off in the second half (2-of-5), but still finished 10-of-18 (55.6%).
o Stanford did not make its first three-point attempt until there was less than 10 minutes left in the game. It was the team's seventh attempt of the night.
o Justin Dentmon tallied one assist in the game. That brings his season total to an even 100 for the season. He is the 28th player to reach that mark in UW history. Roy leads the team with 109 assists. The two Huskies are now the seventh pair in UW history to each reach 100 assists in the same season.
o Washington had three players with double-digit points (Jensen 18, Roy 11, Williams 10) before Stanford had its first (Prowitt 10) at the 12:05 mark of the second half.
o Chris Hernandez was held to just nine points on 3-of-10 shooting from the field. It marks just the fifth time this season that the senior has been held to fewer than 10 points in a game.
