UW 85-70, assuring the Huskies a No. 7 finish in the Pac-10 regular season.
Star of the game: Guard Ryan Appleby led UW with 22 points, including five-of-seven shooting from beyond the three-point arc. It was his second consecutive game with five threes.
Key stats: Washington committed 10 turnovers, its fewest since the win over LSU in mid-December. The Huskies hit 10 three-pointers, their most since opening conference play with 13 at USC in late December.
Key run: The Trojans were just six points back with four minutes left. Over those final four minutes, UW center Spencer Hawes scored eight of his 13 points, going two-of-two from the field and four-of-four from the line.
Never miss a local story.
Observations: Washington has won 10 of its last 12 home games against ranked teams. … Appleby missed his first free throw of the night, ending a stretch of 21 straight without a miss. … UW starting point guard Justin Dentmon had no turnovers.
Quotable: "I think they worry about our inside a lot, so when we're coming off those screens I don't think they're having their bigs help as much. We were getting a little bit of space to get open because they were so worried about Spencer (Hawes) and Jon (Brockman) and those guys down low." – Appleby on UW's three-point success.
Next: 11 a.m. Saturday, No. 2 UCLA, Hec Edmundson Pavilion.
