Here's our game story.
Here's columnist Dave Boling's look at UW's day in the ESPN spotlight.
And here's the skimmers' version:
Star of the game: Quincy Pondexter overcame the emotions of Senior Night to drill his first four shots from the field. He ended up as the game's top scorer with 20 points. And he came off the court late to a standing ovation from the sellout crowd at Hec Ed.
Key stats: UW shot 67.9 percent in the first half and 59.3 percent for the game. ... UCLA shot 36.7 percent in the first half and 46.3 for the game. ... The Huskies got 30 points off of 18 UCLA turnovers. ... UW out-rebounded UCLA, 33-23.
Key run: Pondexter opened the game with a 3-pointer and hit his first four shots from the field. That got the Huskies going, and the crowd going, and that was that.
UW quotable: “I can’t really explain it right now. This is something I’m going to have to savor and remember and share with my kids. … I’m never going to get these four years back, and I’ve loved every moment of it. I came in as a young kid that didn’t really know much, and to look at myself now, it’s night and day. It’s a blessing every day.” -- Pondexter
UW quotable: "'Gameday' doesn't get us into the NCAA tournament. It doesn't get us an extra win at all, it doesn't change our record this year. It doesn't change the fact that we've won one road game. I thought that it was awesome this morning to see to see the University of Washington, where I went to school, is one of eight stops for ESPN Gameday. That they thought enough of us to come here. It makes you feel good about your program in terms of maybe we've built up a bit of credibility."
UCLA quotable: “We just could not handle their pressure. Their pressure took us out of everything we wanted to do in the first half, including even catching the ball.” -- coach Ben Howland
What fans will be talking about: How can this team be so good sometimes, and so bad sometimes. ... Where does Pondexter rank among the recent great Huskies: Robinson, Roy, Brockman?
Next: 7 p.m. Saturday at Washington State.
