Washington goes after 14th straight regular-season win

Nov 29, 2006 - 3:08 PM Idaho (1-4) at No. 11 Washington (5-0) 10:00 pm EST

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Washington may be undefeated, but its resume is far from overwhelming at this point.

The 11th-ranked Huskies try to run their regular-season winning streak to 14 games Wednesday when they hook up with Idaho in a non-conference matchup.

Washington has won all five of its games this season, but only one by more than nine points. The Huskies have four players averaging double-figures, led by freshman Quincy Pondexter's 15.6 points.

Justin Dentmon, who is averaging 15.2 points, scored 23 on Friday in a 90-83 victory over Eastern Washington. Pondexter added 15 and eight rebounds and freshmen Adrian Oliver and Spencer Hawes chipped in 14 points apiece.

The Huskies are looking for their 20th straight regular-season win over teams outside of the Pac-10 Conference. They also have won 72 of their last 85 home matchups against the Vandals.

Idaho enters with a three-game losing streak, including Sunday's 76-51 defeat against Gonzaga. Keoni Watson and Mario Mackey scored 11 points apiece but combined to make just 9-of-27 shots.

No one has shouted yet.
Be the first!
