Stanford, Calif. - A different style still meant the same results as No. 16 Stanford raced to yet another victory over Washington.
Julius Barnes added 15 points as Stanford (11-4, 4-2 Pac-10) extended its winning streak over the Huskies to nine straight.
"We don't have the big bodies up front anymore, so we have to play more of a full court game," Borchardt said. "Jason and Jarron (Collins) just swallowed up rebounds. We don't have that this year, so we have to be more intense."
David Dixon recorded his fourth double-double of the season with 16 rebounds and 13 points to lead Washington (7-11, 1-7), which lost its sixth straight on the road. Doug Wrenn added 16 points and Curtis Allen had 13.
It was Stanford's largest margin of victory ever against Washington, and the most points the Cardinal have scored against the Huskies. It was Washington's third-worst loss ever.
"I'm hoping I don't see a lot shell-shocked looks when I get out to the team bus," Washington coach Bob Bender said. "That would mean this could have a long-term affect on us."
The game featured the Pac-10 blocked shots leaders in Dixon and Borchardt. Dixon blocked five shots for 42 on the year, already the fourth highest single-season total in school history.
Dixon, who set the single-game school record with seven earlier in the season, tied for third-best with his latest effort.
"I'm just out there battling," Dixon said. "The numbers add up at the end."
Borchardt had two blocked shots for 37, ninth best in Stanford history.
The Huskies have dropped nine of 10 overall and fell to 0-5 against ranked opponents. Washington hasn't won at Stanford since Jan. 30, 1993.
Under Bender, the Huskies are 0-9 at Maples Pavilion. The Cardinal have been ranked in the top five the previous four times Washington has faced them.
"Stanford just has our number," Bender said.
The nine-game winning streak against the Huskies is the longest for Stanford in a series that dates to the 1915-16 season.
"The main thing is we distributed the ball well," Stanford coach Mike Montgomery said. "I feel a lot better after this weekend. We know it's going to get a lot tougher."
Stanford went on a 27-7 run in the first eight minutes of the second half - with Jacobsen scoring 10 points in the stretch - to blow the game open at 76-36.
The Cardinal led by as many as 48 points.
Borchardt scored 13 points in the first 8:15 of the contest as Stanford took a 20-13 advantage.
Washington held a lead - for 22 seconds - at 10-8. It was all Cardinal afterward.
Tony Giovacchini hit a 28-foot 3-pointer at the buzzer to give Stanford a 49-29 halftime lead.
Both teams also boast a two-sport athlete. Washington's Charles Frederick and Stanford's Teyo Johnson, who finished with 11 points, each played wide receiver on their respective football squads.
Josh Childress added 10 points for Stanford.
