Here's our game story.
The Huskies were happy about their exciting win and their rise in the Pac-10 standings.
With the win, the Huskies move past Cal into tie for seventh in the Pac-10 standings, and they are within a game of Arizona.
The Huskies must have had plenty to talk about on their flight home ... which they shared with the WSU Cougars, their opponent next weekend.
Star of the game: Washington 7-footer Joe Wolfinger scored a career-high 17 points in 18 minutes. He did it with perfect shooting: 6-of-6 from the field including 4-of-4 on 3-pointers, and 1-of-1 from the foul line.
Key stats: Washington scored 44 points in the paint, the stat that Cal coach Ben Braun considered decisive. … The Huskies shot 53.2 percent from the field. … UW's 49 first-half points were the most this Pac-10 season. … Washington had only one first-half turnover and ended with six. … Cal out-rebounded UW, 38-30.
Key run: Washington had a seven-point lead about four minutes into the second half, when Jon Brockman went out with his fourth foul. When Brockman returned to the court 10 minutes later, the Huskies were still up by seven.
Observations: All 10 Huskies scored. … Brockman had four rebounds, matching the season-low he set in the previous game against Cal. … Wolfinger had no rebounds. … Ryan Appleby hit four 3-pointers in the first half, but none in the second. … Former Husky and Sacramento Kings rookie Spencer Hawes was in attendance.
Quotable: "It was fun to watch. It wasn't fun sitting there. It wasn't fun not being able to contribute. But I was really proud of our guys for doing what they did." – Brockman on the Huskies' play while he was on the bench.
Next: 4:30 p.m. Saturday, at No. 22 Washington State, Friel Court, Pullman.
