Jan. 24, 1998

SEATTLE - Kris Weems hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer as fifth-ranked Stanford remained undefeated with a 74-72 triumph over Washington at Edmundson Pavilion.

Stanford (18-0, 7-0) won its school-record 18th straight game. The Cardinal are one of only two undefeated teams remaining, joining Utah. Washington had its three-game winning streak snapped, dropping to 12-4 overall, 5-2 in Pac-10 play.

Donald Watts hit a six-foot baseline jumper with 5.1 seconds remaining to put the Huskies ahead 72-71. Weems took the inbounds pass, drove across midcourt and sank the game-winning shot just right of the top of the key.

Weems finished with 14 points as all five Cardinal starters scored in double figures. Arthur Lee led Stanford with 17 points, Tim Young scored 14, Peter Sauer scored 11 and Pete Van Elswyk had 10.

The Cardinal extended a 37-34 halftime edge to as many as 12 points at 52-40 with 15:39 left in the game. Washington went on a 22-9 surge to take its first lead at 62-61. Watts capped the run with a 3-pointer at 5:39.

Watts finished with 21 points to pace the Huskies who also got 12 from both Deon Luton and Jan Wooten. Todd MacCulloch, who entered the game ranked second among Pac-10 players in scoring and rebounding, was limited to five points and three boards.

Young had 12 rebounds for Stanford which outrebounded the Huskies 40-24. #5 Stanford 74, Washington 72
