Murray pops for 25 as Washington beats Stanford 64-53
SEATTLE (AP) — Dejounte Murray carried Washington with 25 points, Marquese Chriss added 11 and the Huskies snapped a four-game losing streak with a 64-53 win over Stanford on Saturday.
The Huskies (16-11, 8-7 Pac-12) picked up a needed victory to keep its slim NCAA tournament hopes alive despite Andrew Andrews failing to score in double figures for just the second time this season. Andrews, the Pac-12 leader in scoring at 20.4 points, finished with eight points, all coming at the free-throw line.
Murray made up for the off-day by Andrews and fellow perimeter shooters David Crisp and Dominic Green. The three were a combined 0 of 18 shooting. Murray was 10 of 14 from the field and added nine rebounds.
Rosco Allen led Stanford (13-12, 6-8) with 20 points, but no other Cardinal scored in double figures.
