Washington holds on against Stanford

STANFORD, Calif.(AP) Quincy Pondexter scored 20 points, including a pair of key free throws down the stretch, and No. 22 Washington ended a 15-game losing streak at Stanford with a 75-68 victory Sunday.

Isaiah Thomas added 17 points and Jon Brockman had 13 points and 12 rebounds for the Huskies (17-6, 8-3 Pac-10), who overcame a 10-point deficit to take a 35-34 halftime lead. Venoy Overton also had 11 points.

Landry Fields scored a career-high 22 points and had 10 rebounds to lead the Cardinal (14-7, 4-7), who've lost four of the last five. Anthony Goods added 12 points and Jeremy Green had 11.

Stanford closed within 66-63 on Fields' jumper with 2:18 left. Thomas followed with a leaner and the Cardinal never got any closer.

Thomas has reached double figures in 17 straight games.

Washington maintained its lead throughout the second half, though Stanford made a run to close within 64-60 on a breakaway dunk by Josh Owens with 4:01 left. Pondexter followed with a pair of free throws - he was 9 of 10 from the foul line - to quiet the crowd.

Brockman recorded his 11th double-double and the 52nd of his career, the most among active players. His putback in the final five seconds of their last meeting gave the Huskies an 84-83 win, one of three one-point road losses the Cardinal have suffered in conference play.

Fields was 10-of-15 from the field and recorded his third double-double. The junior also had two blocks.

The Huskies scored 11 unanswered points in a run that spanned both halves and gave them a 10-point lead five minutes into the second half.

A 12-0 run gave Stanford a 25-15 advantage with 8:48 remaining in the first half.

The Cardinal made two of their final nine shots and committed six turnovers the remainder of the half, allowing Washington to go into the locker room with a 35-34 edge.
