UW vs. OSU game thread

Huskies pulling away

Venoy Overton just made back to back baskets with nice drives to the hoops, and the Huskies are now leading 55-42 after a 10-0 run.

Dentmon hit a three to start that run and now has 22 points.

This might be it for the night, as it’s not time to get cranking on the story for tomorrow’s paper.

Washington 36, OSU 35, halftime

The Huskies are up just one at halftime, not what most of the sold-out crowd was expecting against Oregon State.

The biggest problem for Washington right now is its inability to take care of the ball. The Huskies have 10 turnovers at halftime, one less than they had in all of their win in Corvallis. It’s also worth noting that the teams are tied with 15 rebounds right now. In the last meeting, Washington outrebounded OSU 46-19.

As I mentioned earlier, the Huskies trailed by as many as seven, but used a 9-0 run to retake the lead.

Justin Dentmon has 16 first-half points to lead Washington, while Seth Tarver has 12 for the Beavers.

Oregon State still up by two

It’s 29-27 Beavers with 3:29 left in the half, but the Huskies have some momentum after Quincy Pondexter just woke up the crowd with a big dunk off a Justin Dentmon pass.

Oregon State has led by seven twice after going on a 9-1 run, but the Huskies are on a little run of their own now.

And Venoy Overton just hit a pair of free throws to tie it coming out of the timeout.

Oregon State 16, Washington 15, 11:23 left in the first half

The good news for Washington is that it is now playing for sole possession of first place in the Pac-10 after ASU just finished off a 74-67 win over UCLA. The bad? The Huskies are losing to Oregon State midway through the first half.

Washing is struggling to get into an offensive rhythm against OSU’s zone defense, and has six turnovers already.

Sloppy start for Huskies

Prior to a Darnell Gant jumper a moment ago, the Huskies had turned the ball over on three of their last four possessions, allowing Oregon State to jump ahead 8-5. Gant’s basket made it a one-point game, however, and after an OSU miss, Justin Dentmon was fouled on a three-point attempt. He’ll attempt to give the Huskies the lead after the timeout.

And as always, with an 8 p.m. tipoff, updates will slow, especially in the second half. Sorry.
