Washington Head Coach Mike Hopkins said after Thursday's 66-64 loss to UCLA that championship teams respond. He was excited to see how the Huskies would respond Sunday night versus USC. Well, he got what he was looking for.

UW held the Trojans to 35 points below their scoring average, blowing them out 72-40 in front of an announced attendance of 8774 at Alaska Airlines Arena.

"We had a game plan," Hopkins said. "There were different things we had to have executed, and they had a great focus, and they had great energy. Those are the two things in any defense you play, you've got to be able to compete like that, with focus and energy. Everybody that came off the bench impacted the game and that was with focus and energy. I was really, really happy with our performance.

"It's not about making shots and missing shots, it's about playing great team defense. It's finishing, being tough, and rebounding. I thought those guys did that tonight. They executed the game plan."

Quade Green, Nate Roberts and Hopkins talked post-game about the win and how they were able to pull it off.
