Suggs leads Washington past Seattle 87-74
Scott Suggs played through leg cramps to score a career-high 24
points, Aziz N’Diaye added 14 points, and Washington led by as many
as 27 in the first half en route to a 87-74 win over crosstown
rival Seattle on Thursday night.
The renewal of the city’s basketball showdown continued to be
completely one-sided in favor of the Huskies. Washington exposed
Seattle’s porous pressure defense in the first half, then countered
every surge the Redhawks made in the second half.
Washington (5-4) has now won eight straight in the series that
took a nearly 30-year hiatus when the Redhawks (3-4) dropped from
Division I, only to start the transition back to the top level of
college hoops in 2008.
