No. 7 Oregon is upset by Washington
Justin Dentmon, benched for the last month for erratic play, scored 24 points and had seven assists to lead Washington to an 89-77 victory over No. 7 Oregon on Thursday night at Seattle.
Ryan Appleby had 16 points and Spencer Hawes, playing despite a sore ankle, had 15 points for the Huskies, 12-7 overall and 2-6 in the Pacific 10 Conference.
