Washington's 3-point shooting sinks Nicholls StateNov 14, 2006 - 5:42 AM SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Washington buried Nicholls State with a record-setting night.
Brandon Burmeister scored 17 points and Justin Dentmon added 16 as the 16th-ranked Huskies set a school mark with 17 3-pointers in a 102-74 romp over the Colonels.
Six players hit in double figures for Washington (2-0), which shot 55 percent (38-of-69) from the field and 17-of-34 from 3-point range.
Washington had 12 3-pointers in the first half alone in storming to a 56-22 lead. The Huskies hit five shots from the arc during a 23-2 run that gave them a 36-8 cushion with 6:39 left in the half.
