Halftime: Stanford 41, UW 34

The Huskies fell behind by double digits in the first 10 minutes, but they played the Cardinal evenly after that and then drew closer on a Justin Dentmon 3-pointer just before the buzzer.


Brook Lopez leads Stanford with 13 points.


Quincy Pondexter — played before some family that came up from his hometown of Fresno — leads UW with nine points and lots of energy. Jon Brockman has eight points and eight rebounds.


Washington has out-rebounded the Cardinal, 17-15; but Stanford has out-shot the Huskies: 55 percent to 47 percent.

Bad start for Huskies: Stanford up, 11-3

Bad start for the Dawgs. Just over four minutes have been played, and Stanford is up 11-3. And ominously, neither Lopez has scored yet.


Meanwhile, the Stanford crowd was booing Tim Morris every time he touched the ball. But coach Lorenzo Romar yanked Morris to the bench after a clunker of a 3-point try.

Rude welcome back for Morris at Maples

They just opened Maples Pavilion to the Stanford students, and one — just one — is offering a screaming rant, apparently at Tim Morris, who transfered from Stanford to UW.


Meanwhile, at least one friendlier face is expected in the house tonight: former Husky Todd MacCulloch, who is now a broadcast analyst with the Philadelphia 76ers, who are in the Bay Area for a game Friday against the Warriors.


A reminder: No TV tonight.

Here’s the preview story from today’s newspaper. And here’s a look from The Stanford Daily, which calls the game the lowest-profile left on the Cardinal’s schedule.


Tonight will mark on the second time that UW guard Tim Morris has ever been inside the visitor’s locker room at Maples. Morris played his first two seasons at Stanford, and says he only went in there once — picking up

Huskies facing crucial, tough Bay Area trip

With their postseason hopes hanging by a thread, the Huskies fly out tonight for what has proven to be their historically toughest road trip.


Washington hasn’t won at Stanford since the 1992-92 season, and has swept the Bay Area trip only once — in 1985. They have swept every other Pac-10 road trip at least twice over that period.


Here’s an early look at the opener against Stanford.

Some of the sports components are still coming together, but there will be a lot going on on the upper campus, as well.


Here is a schedule of some of those events.


By the way, there had been some talk that the spring game might be televised this season, as it was occasionally in the ’90s. That apparently won’t happen. The only way to get an early look at these Dawgs will be to attend. The game
