SEATTLE (AP)—Scott Suggs played through leg cramps to score a career-high 24 points, Aziz N’Diaye added 14 points, and Washington led by as many as 27 in the first half en route to a 87-74 win over crosstown rival Seattle on Thursday night.

The renewal of the city’s basketball showdown continued to be completely one-sided in favor of the Huskies. Washington exposed Seattle’s porous pressure defense in the first half, then countered every surge the Redhawks made in the second half.

Washington (5-4) has now won eight straight in the series that took a nearly 30-year hiatus when the Redhawks (3-4) dropped from Division I, only to start the transition back to the top level of college hoops in 2008.
