SEATTLE (AP) - Mark Madsen scored 15 points and Kris Weems and Arthur Lee each had 14 as No. 7 Stanford rolled over Washington 89-57 Thursday night.
The Cardinal (21-5, 11-2 Pac-10), bouncing back from an overtime loss to Southern California at home, posted their biggest win ever over the Huskies in Seattle. It was the first loss at home this season for Washington (15-9, 8-6).
Donald Watts topped the Huskies with 18 points, while Todd MacCulloch, Washington's 7-foot center, had 13 points and 10 rebounds.
Stanford outrebounded the Huskies 48-25 with Jarron Collins pulling down 10 rebounds and Madsen nine.
After leading 45-31 at halftime, Stanford put the game away early in the second half.
Weems opened the Cardinal's second half scoring with a 3-pointer and Madsen followed with a put-back.
Deon Luton and Watts each made a 3-pointer for Washington, but Stanford ran off eight straight points, including two baskets by Tim Young, for a 58-37 lead 5:36 into the second half.
Stanford led 24-13 on a 12-0 run after MacCulloch gave Washington its last lead, 13-12 with 11:07 left in the first half. Madsen had five of the Cardinal's points with a putback, a free throw and a layup.
After Watts connected on a 3-pointer with 59 seconds left, Collins made a layup and a shot over MacCulloch in the final 41 seconds of the opening half.
The Cardinal handed the Huskies their first loss in 11 games in Seattle this season and beat them for the fourth straight time. The Cardinal won 67-60 Jan. 23 at Stanford.
