TOP 25 MEN Huskies top Pac-10 foe
SEATTLE (AP) -- Nate Robinson scored 13 points and the No. 10 Washington Huskies moved into a tie for the Pac-10 lead with a 66-48 victory over Washington State on Sunday.
Jamaal Williams and freshman Joel Smith came off the bench to each score 10 points for the Huskies (16-2, 6-1), who won their 18th straight at home.
The Huskies are tied for first place in the Pac-10 with Arizona.
It wasn't a classic Washington offensive performance. The Huskies shot .359 percent from the field (23-for-64) and 3-for-13 from 3-point range, but coach Dick Bennett's ball-control Cougars had a lot to do with that.
The purple-clad student section didn't appreciate the Cougars' deliberate, slowdown tactics, chanting, "Boring, boring, boring," in the second half.
Washington came into the game averaging 89.4 points a game, tops in the Pac-10 and second in the nation. The Huskies had their lowest point total of the season. They have scored 100 or more points in four games this season.
Thomas Kelati led Washington State (8-8, 3-4) with 12 points.
Washington beat Washington State for the 11th consecutive time at home.
