The Huskies trailed from first shot to final buzzer. They just didn't have i, just as they haven't too often this season when home court dried up as a significant advantage.
Here's the game story.
The Huskies ended their home season 12-6 overall, and 4-5 in the Pacific-10 Conference.
And rather than climb perhaps as high as fifth place in the conference, they remain tied for eighth and dead ahead are road games against three Pac-10 teams -- Stanford, Cal and WSU -- who beath them earlier in Seattle.
Star of the game: Arizona State freshman James Harden led all scorers with 25 points on 7-of-11 shooting, including 3-of-5 beyond the 3-point arc. His eight rebounds also led the Sun Devils.
Key stats: Washington hit only 22 of 62 shots (35.5 percent), and was 4-of-21 (19 percent) on 3-pointers. The Huskies' 27.3 percent shooting in the first half was their lowest of the season.
Key run: Washington never led and never pulled even. They were down by eight with about eight minutes left when the Sun Devils put it away with an 18-6 run.
Observations: The Sun Devils ended an 11-game losing streak to the Huskies. … This also was UW's first Senior Day loss since 1996. … UW seniors Ryan Appleby and Tim Morris were recognized before the game. Appleby had 12 points, Morris three. … UW junior Jon Brockman had his 20th double-double of the season. … In the crowd was former Sonic and current Trail Blazers coach Nate McMillian, whose son Jamelle is a freshman guard for the Sun Devils.
Quotable: "Our home crowds have been great. We just weren't able to get it done at home this year like we have in the past." – UW coach Lorenzo Romar on the Huskies' 4-5 home record in Pac-10 play.
