SEATTLE — The Washington Huskies didn't look forward to playing grind-it-out Washington State.
"It was something we're definitely not used to," Jamaal Williams said. "You just have to tough it out."
Nate Robinson scored 13 points and the No. 10-ranked Huskies moved into a tie for the Pacific 10 Conference lead with a 66-48 victory over the Cougars on Sunday.
Williams and freshman Joel Smith came off the bench to each score 10 points and help the Huskies win their 18th in a row at home and tie a school record with their 12th straight Pac-10 home victory. Washington is 16-2 overall and 6-1 in the conference.
The Huskies are tied for first with Arizona (6-1), which beat Oregon State, 92-83, Saturday night.
It wasn't a classic Washington offensive performance. The Huskies shot a season-worst 35.9% from the field, but the ball-control Cougars had a lot to do with that.
