Here is our game story. And below is a quicker look at Washington's 86-72 win over Oregon, the Dawgs' final game ever at Mac Court:
Star of the game: The easiest pick ever. UW senior Quincy Pondexter had a career high 34 points on 14-of-18 shooting, while also contributing 10 rebounds and six assists. He wouldn't say after that it was his best game ever. But I will.
Key stats: UW shot 53.1 percent from the field. ... UW had to tag-team its big men as Matthew Bryan-Amaning and Tyreese Breshers each had four fould and Darnell Gant had three. ... Oregon had 13 steals, contributing to 19 UW turnovers. ... In his last game against the Huskies, Oregon's Tajuan Porter led the Ducks with 18 points, but they came on 5-of-15 shooting.
Key run: UW went on an 11-0 run early in the second half. The key daggers came from a surprising place: a pair of treys from Justin Holiday.
Never miss a local story.
UW quotable: "I wanted to prove to everyone that I’m a quality player on the road even though some people don’t think so. I just tried to play my game. … I just laugh it off because I know the truth." -- Pondexter
Ducks quotable: "We left way too many basketball plays on the floor. Washington, to it’s credit, I thought Pondexter played just a wonderful game. Their athleticism really turned the game into an uptempo game in the second half." -- coach Ernie Kent
What fans will be talking about: Is there still a possible shot at an at-large NCAA bid? Even if not, have the Huskies solved their road problems enough to have a really good shot at winning the Pac-10 tournament next week? And even if not, how much brighter does next season become if Bryan-Amaning and Holiday continue to improve in their senior season as they have been improving recently?
Next: The Huskies (20-9, 10-7) conclude their regular season at 5 p.m. Saturday at Oregon State.
