SEATTLE (Ticker) -- No. 24 Washington had four key players unavailable for its season opener. But they still had Brandon Roy and Nate Robinson.
Roy scored 23 points and Robinson added 22 as Washington posted an 89-71 victory over Division II Seattle Pacific.
The Huskies were playing with only six scholarship players after Will Conroy, Bobby Jones and Tre Simmons - all starters on last season's NCAA Tournament team - as well as transfer Jamaal Williams were suspended by the NCAA for participating in an organized basketball competition in May.
It did not matter against the Falcons as Roy and Robinson, the two leading scorers from last season's squad, did enough to lead Washington to its 10th win in as many games vs. its cross-town rival.
Roy was 10-of-15 from the field to pace the Huskies, who shot 45.3 percent (29-of-64). Robinson did most of his damage from the free throw line, where he was 11-of-12.
Jordan Lee scored 22 points and Jason Chivers added 17 for Seattle Pacific.
Mike Jensen had 14 points and 13 rebounds for the Huskies, who outrebounded Seattle Pacific, 42-28, including a 22-11 advantage on the offensive glass. Washington, which was ranked in the preseason Top 25 for the first time in six seasons, will have Conroy, Jones and Williams available for their next game against Utah in the first round of the Great Alaska Shootout. Simmons will return for the second-round game.
