Pondexter's 20 leads Washington rout of UCLA 97-68Feb 21, 2010 - 4:10 AM By TIM BOOTH AP Sports Writer
SEATTLE(AP) -- Quincy Pondexter turned his final home game at Washington into a personal highlight show, scoring 10 points in the first 5 minutes, finishing with 20 and leading the Huskies to a 97-68 rout of UCLA on Saturday night.
With a national television audience watching, Pondexter ripped a 3-pointer from the wing on his first shot and the Huskies steamrolled the Bruins from there. His final home appearance for the Huskies included plenty of chants from fans, a highlight-reel, two-handed windmill dunk on a breakaway and a long final ovation when Pondexter checked out for the final time with 4:25 left.
Isaiah Thomas added 13 of his 17 points in the first half. Washington was up by 23 at halftime and the lead ballooned to as many as 33 in the second half. It was Washington's largest margin of victory ever over the Bruins.
Reeves Nelson led UCLA with 14 points and Nikola Dragovic added 13.
