    SEATTLE -- Justin Dentmon rescued Washington from a rare off night by its leader, scoring 22 points and the surprising Huskies beat Southern California 78-73 Thursday night.

    Senior Jon Brockman had 13 rebounds but scored a season-low four points and did not make a field goal for the first time since his freshman season. Yet dynamic freshman Isaiah Thomas, the team's co-leader in scoring coming in, scored 17 to aid Dentmon for the Huskies (14-4, 5-1 Pac-10). They won for the 12th time in 13 games.

    Washington, off to its best start in four years, hosts No. 13 UCLA (15-3, 5-1) Saturday for the conference lead.

    Daniel Hackett scored a season-high 24 points and prized freshman DeMar DeRozan added 16 -- but just four after halftime -- for the Trojans (12-6, 3-4).

    They lost for the third time in five games.

    USC was without leading scorer Dwight Lewis, who has an ankle injury. Freshman Leonard Washington replaced him and scored just 2 points on 1-for-8 shooting before fouling out.
