SAN DIEGO (AP) — Xavier Thames scored 19 points, and No. 24 San Diego State rallied from a nine-point halftime deficit to beat Washington 70-63 on Sunday.

Winston Shepard added 17 points for the Aztecs (7-1), who won their sixth straight while playing for the fifth time in 11 days.

C.J. Wilcox led Washington (4-4) with 17 points. Nigel Williams-Goss added 14 for the Huskies.

The Aztecs opened the second half with a 17-2 run, taking the lead on a jump shot by Thames with 14:59 remaining. JJ O’Brien scored five straight points during the run.

Washington didn’t make a field goal in the second half until Wilcox hit a three-pointer with 12:49 left.

Wilcox gave the Huskies a brief 42-41 lead with a layup with 11:21 remaining, but San Diego State scored six unanswered points, capped by Matt Shrigley’s three-point shot, to build a 47-41 edge.

The Huskies pulled within 65-63 on a three-pointer by Williams-Goss with 29 seconds remaining, but Shepard sank two free throws to preserve the advantage for the Aztecs.

Washington built a 30-21 lead at the break as San Diego State shot just 28 percent from the field, including 1-for-7 from three-point range.

The Aztecs extended their 42-game winning streak at home against non-conference, unranked opponents, and have won 12 of 14 games against current Pac-12 conference members.
