Get the inside scoop on your favorite team:

TEMPE, Ariz. Mike Jensen made four of five 3-pointers and scored 14 points to lead No. 14 Washington to a 91-64 victory over Arizona State on Thursday night.

Brandon Roy was one of four Washington players with 13 points, ending his string of nine consecutive games of at least 20 points. The streak was the longest in Huskies' record books dating to 1960.

Roy fell one free throw shy of the Washington record of 33 straight when he missed his first attempt of the game from the line.

Jamaal Williams, Ryan Appleby and Jon Brockman added 13 apiece for the Huskies (23-5, 12-5 Pac-10).

Kevin Kruger scored 23 for Arizona State, 19 in the first half when the Sun Devils took a 40-38 lead at the break. Jeff Pendergraph added 15 points and 11 rebounds, the freshman's third consecutive double-double.

The game was a near-duplicate of the teams' first meeting Dec. 29 in Seattle, when the Huskies led 40-38 at the break, then blew out the Sun Devils 91-67.

In this one, Washington scored the first 11 points of the second half en route to an 18-4 run that put the Huskies up 56-44 on Williams' hook shot with 13:22 to play. Six Washington players scored in the surge.

Arizona State cut it to 56-48 on Antwi Atuahene's two free throws with 12:13 to go before the Huskies turned it on in a 24-5 outburst to go up 80-53.

Kruger made seven of his first eight shots and was 8-for-11 in the first half and 2-for-6 in the second. His 18-footer at the buzzer put the Sun Devils up 40-38 at the break.

Kruger had a pair of steals, an assist and six points in a 9-1 spurt that gave Arizona State a 28-23 lead after Serge Angounou made one of two free throws with 7:21 left in the half.

A 6-0 surge put Washington back on top 38-35 when Jamaal Williams made one of two free throws a minute before halftime. Sylvester Seay's 3-pointer tied it at 38 with 25 seconds remaining in the half.

Washington outscored ASU 53-24 in the second half.
