Da Silva, Cardinal pull away from Washington in 2nd half
SEATTLE (AP) --- Oscar Da Silva scored 16 point and grabbed nine rebounds,
Tyrell Terry added 14 points and Stanford held Washington to just eight
second-half field goals to beat the Huskies 72-64 on Thursday night.
The Cardinal (17-9, 6-7 Pac-12) picked up a quality road win with tournament
selection time approaching, snapped a four-game losing streak and sent the
Huskies (12-15, 2-12) to their ninth straight loss. Washington has now lost 13
of its last 15.
Washington got 14 points from Isaiah Stewart, who fueled the Huskies during an
entertaining first half and also set the school's freshman record for blocks
The Huskies took a 37-35 halftime lead on Nahziah Carter's fastbreak dunk
following a steal and touch pass form Marcus Tsohonis. The rally was spurred in
part by a flagrant foul on Lukas Kisunas, giving Stewart two free throws, and
an 8-4 run to finish the half.
RaeQuan Battle's four-point play with 16:03 in the game gave the Huskies 47-44
lead, but things went awry from there. Stanford held Washington scoreless for
the next 5:10, then for another 4:21 after a pair of free throws, building a
55-49 lead with 9:14 left.
They weren't done, adding another 4:27 scoreless stretch. In all, the Huskies
made 1 of 17 field goals during those long barren runs, shooting 27% from the
field in the second half. They hit just 4 of 24 3-point attempts.
Stanford also got 12 points from Spencer Jones, who was 4 of 8 on 3-pointers.
Tsohonis added 11 for Washington, and Carter and Battle added 10 apiece.
Stanford: This victory will look great on the Cardinal's tournament resume.
After this road swing through the Evergreen State, home games against Utah and
Colorado loom large next week and will go a long way to determining Stanford's
Washington: Another bad loss in an increasingly difficult season. The Huskies
looked competitive for a half, then were anything but down the stretch.
