SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Washington might have entered the NCAA tournament a No. 11 seed, but the Huskies crushed New Mexico 82-64 to advance to the Sweet 16.

Quincy Pondexter scored 18, and Matthew Bryan-Amaning came up huge down low with 15 points and nine rebounds for the Huskies, now winners of nine in a row.

Bryan-Amaning had numerous monster dunks and finished 7-for-10 from the field, as Washington simply bullied No. 3-seeded New Mexico.

Dairese Gary led all scorers with 25 points, and Darington Hobson had 11 points and nine rebounds, but the Lobos were never really in the game in the second half with the Huskies on fire and committing only five turnovers.

Isaiah Thomas scored 15, and Elston Turner provided a lift off the bench again with 10 points for Washington. Justin Holiday had three blocked shots.

The Huskies, who move on to face the winner of the West-Virginia-Missouri game, played their most complete game of the season.
