The Stanford men’s basketball team will attempt to accomplish something tonight it has never done under head coach Johnny Dawkins: defeat the Washington Huskies in Seattle. Even including a 79-67 home victory against the Huskies on Jan. 18, Stanford (15-7, 6-4 Pac-12) owns just a 2-9 record against Washington (13-11, 5-6) with Dawkins as head coach. The losing streak in Seattle spans four games, with the Cardinal’s last win coming back on Jan. 31, 2008, when Brook Lopez’s monster 31-point, 13-rebound performance powered Stanford to a 65-51 victory.
