Pac-10 “Player of the Week”
The week long war of words between Washington point guard Isaiah Thomas and Klay Thompson added even more fuel to the fire for this mid-season rivalry game. In front of a frenzied crowd Thompson and the Washington State Cougars ended their drought against the Washington Huskies with a convincing 87-80 victory. Thompson scored 25 points on 9 of 18 shooting from the floor and 3 of 6 from behind the three point line. He also contributed 2 rebounds, 4 assists, a block and 5 steals while breaking out of a personal slump against the Huskies. This was a must have game for the Cougars within the Pac-10 Conference and as a resume builder for NCAA Tournament consideration.
