Halftime: Washington 44, New Mexico 32
By Diamond Leung
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Quick thoughts from the Pac-10 vs. Mountain West game...
Washington is off to a fast start, with Quincy Pondexter scoring 10 points and Isaiah Thomas scoring nine. All of Thomas' points have come on 3-pointers. The Huskies as a team are shooting 51.5 percent from the field.
New Mexico is struggling by shooting 38.9 percent from the field, 3-for-12 from beyond the arc and 1-for-6 on free throws.
Elston Turner knocked down two more big 3-pointers for Washington. One came while he was fouled, but the free throw missed on what would have been a 4-point play. But that 3 gave the Huskies a 41-27 lead.
Dairese Gary has a game-high 15 points on 7-of-11 shooting. Darington Hobson has three points, five rebounds and two assists playing with a sore wrist.
