SEATTLE -Justin Dentmon, benched for the last month for erratic play, scored 24 points and had seven assists to lead Washington to an 89-77 victory over No. 7 Oregon on Thursday night.

Ryan Appleby had 16 points and Spencer Hawes added 15 on a bad ankle as the Huskies (12-7, 2-6 Pac-10) overcame Dentmon's six turnovers. Washington has won eight of its last nine home games against ranked teams.

No Pac-10 team has ever made the NCAA tournament without a winning conference record. Washington must win eight of its last 10 games inside the Pac-10 to finish 10-8 in the league. The Huskies now have wins over then-No. 12 LSU and the Ducks.

Bryce Taylor scored 19 points to lead Oregon (18-2, 6-2), which was playing without the suspended Aaron Brooks, the Pac-10's scoring leader. The Ducks' sixth straight loss in Seattle, and first road loss in seven games this season, ruined their best start in 80 years.

Their 1926-27 team started 24-1. That was also the last time Oregon began 7-1 in conference play.

Brooks, averaging 18.4 points per game, sat out as his final penalty for elbowing Appleby in the face during a conference tournament game last March.
