"Despite going scoreless for more than 5 minutes early in the second half, Washington was able to take the lead on Matisse Thybulle's 3-point play with 13:41 left that snapped the Huskies' scoring drought and was followed by Murray's left-handed drive to the rim and a 3-pointer from Chriss. Andrews was fouled shooting a 3 and finally got on the scoresheet, hitting two of three free throws and Washington's lead was 40-35 with 11:58 remaining.
Stanford pulled within 40-39, but Allen missed a driving layup attempt that could have given the Cardinal the lead. Thybulle answered with another 3-point play, and Dime's lob dunk from Andrews gave the Huskies a 45-39 lead with 8:59 left. Murray's driving layup 90 seconds later pushed Washington's lead to 49-41, its largest of the game."
"One of the consistent themes of the first half was Stanford's zone defense denying opportunities for Washington to feed the ball into the paint to Dickerson or Dime. Among the guards, Murray had much more success than Andrews at cutting into the paint to break up the monotony of running out the shot clock with passes around the perimeter.
Stanford left a lot of points at the free throw line. The 4-7 shooting is misleading when you consider that all three misses came on the front end of 1-and-1 opportunities.
Neither team could avoid constant, painful turnovers. Murray was a particular culprit for the Huskies, often trying desperate passes whenever he dribbled into trouble."
