Playing in his final game at the Alaska Airlines Arena, Washington senior C.J. Wilcox scored 24 points, grabbed eight rebounds and had three steals to lead the Huskies.
Washington (16-14, 8-9) had won two in a row and looked sharp early on as the team shot nearly 59 percent from the field in the first half to take a 45-41 lead, but UCLA out-scored the Huskies 50-37 in the final 20 minutes to secure the win.
With 23 points, Wilcox passed Jon Brockman (1,805 points) for second on Washington’s all-time scoring list as Washington snapped a 7-game road losing streak with the blowout victory.
The loss was Washington’s (14-13, 6-8) fifth in its last six games and dropped the team further down in the Pac-12 conference standings where it currently sits eighth.
Mike Moser scored 20 points and Joseph Young finished with 18 to lead Oregon (17-8, 5-8) which shot 57 percent from the field for the contest.
Washington (14-12, 6-7) struggled from the field, finishing at just 36 percent for the game. The loss dropped the Huskies down to eighth in the Pac-12 conference standings with three weeks to the regular season remaining.
Wilcox finished with 17 points and Nigel Williams-Goss added 16 points and five assists. Perhaps the biggest contribution for the Huskies, though, came from guard Mike Anderson who finished with 13 points including two key back-to-back 3-pointers which capped a 12-2 run over the first three minutes of the second half to give Washington a 39-36 lead.
The Huskies were led by freshman point guard Nigel Williams-Goss who scored 15 points and delivered four assists. Leading-scorer and All-Pac-12 guard C.J. Wilcox was held to just eight points on 2-for-10 shooting from the field including 0-for-7 from beyond the arc.
