Washington Running into Second Round of NCAA Tournament - West Region,Recap,Score

Washington will face Purdue in the second round of the NCAA tournament after running by Mississippi State by a score of 71-58 in their first round West Region match up. Mississippi State was put at a major disadvantage when Jarvis Varnado got into early foul trouble. With Varnado often out of the game Huskies team captain Jon Brockman got a double double with 14 rebounds and 10 points. It was Quincy Pondexter who took the most advantage of the situation with a season high 23 points. To get a better idea the impact Varnado can have for Mississippi State he led the nation this year in blocked shots and still had 5 blocked shots in this game along with seven points in only 23 minutes of play.

Washington will now continue their outstanding season, which has included their first out-right Pac 10 Title since 1953. The Washington Huskies will face a Purdue team in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Washington might have gotten to avoid some of the physical play of Varnado but they will likely see physical play all day long against Purdue.
