Stanford angered the wrong guy.
That's how UW junior guard Isaiah Thomas explained his late first half eruption tonight when he scored 14 points in the final two and a half minutes of the first half in the Huskies' 87-76 win over the Cardinal.
"They made me mad," he said. "They were just talking. I just had to turn it up. It was the end of the half. I couldn’t really see either, but luckily the shots went in."
Never miss a local story.
"My eye was so messed up. I seen two of everything. I don’t know how they went in. Yeah, I got hit by a teammate early in the first half. That’s why I had to come out."
"They were just talking a little too much. I just felt like I had to be a little more aggressive than when I was first in there. Like I said, my teammates found me and I knocked down the shots."
