Ross provides answer as UW rolls
Matthew Bryan-Amaning and Scott Suggs finished with 13 each for UW.
Oregon was led by the 20 points of Joevan Catron, who scored 11-straight to start out the second half. Garrett Sim was the only other Oregon fan to score in double-figures with 13. The Ducks actually led 47-46 after a Johnathan Loyd three-pointer, but it would be their last lead of the game. Bryan-Amaning and Suggs would help give UW a 64-57 lead, and Ross and Thomas would take it home from there.
Oregon Head Coach Dana Altman threw the kitchen sink defensively at the Huskies, including traps, zones and man-to-man, but it didn't stop UW from scoring at their season average, as well as dishing out an impressive 19 assists while only turning the ball over 12 times. That's not to say they didn't have some periods of effectiveness.
Two free throws by Teondre Williams with 3:04 left in the first half tied the game up, but Ross and Suggs stepped up and gave UW an 8-2 edge to finish the half 39-33.
"We came out real slow," Ross said after the game. "We weren't as focused as we should have been. We had to make some adjustments."
The victory gives UW a current 10-game winning streak, the longest streak the Huskies have had in conference in five years. They also remain undefeated in games where they out-shoot and out-rebound their opponents. Thursday night they out-shot Oregon .514 to .393 and out-rebounded them 40-31 after only out-rebounding them by one at the half.
