SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Nate Robinson and Tre Simmons made sure No. 16 Washington rebounded from its first loss of the season.
Robinson and Simmons each scored 20 points and the Huskies built an early lead and cruised to an 89-56 victory over Eastern Washington.
Washington (5-1) suffered its seventh straight loss to Gonzaga, 99-87, on Wednesday but in this one the outcome was never in doubt. The Huskies jumped out to the lead with an early 13-6 run and the rout was on.
"We are happy to come back and get a victory," Washington coach Lorenzo Romar said. "The loss to Gonzaga just lingers with you, so we are glad to bounce back and play relatively good basketball."
Simmons hit 8-of-13 shots and Robinson led the Huskies with seven rebounds and seven assists.
Washington led 54-29 at the half and got 11 points from Will Conroy.
"I'm not one of those coaches that says we're glad we lost because we learned from it. I'm never glad if we lose," Romar said. "We still wanted to come out tonight and judge this game based solely on how we played. I thought for the most part we did a good job of that."
Eastern Washington (2-3) committed 30 turnovers that led to 45 Washington points. The Eagles had 16 of their turnovers in the opening 20 minutes leading to 26 points for the Huskies as they built the big lead.
"They did a great job of getting out and making it extremely difficult to establish any offense," Eastern Washington coach Mike Burns said. "On the other hand, I think we had a lack of poise throughout the game that cost us dearly."
Jacob Beitinger scored 14 and Matt Nelson added 10 for the Eagles who never got closer than 20 in the second half.
