So much for making a statement on national television.
UCLA trails Washington 49-26 at halftime in front of a loud and rowdy crowd. The Bruins seem thoroughly rattled by sellout crowd at Bank of America Arena -- so much so that coach Ben Howland has burned all but one of his timeouts.
UCLA dug itself a hole by missing its first six shots. Washington forward Quincy Pondexter is having himself some kind of game on Senior Night. He leads all scorers with 14 points and guard Isaiah Thomas has 13 for the Huskies. Washington is shooting 70 percent from the field.
UCLA's Michael Roll and Malcolm Lee have combined to miss nine shots.
