(1090 The Fan) — Chasson Randle scored a game-high 33 points as Stanford upended Washington 79-67, Saturday night. The junior guard was too much to handle for Washington guards Nigel Williams-Goss, Andrew Andrews and C.J. […]
Wilcox finished with 31 points on 12-for-18 shooting, including a career-best 7-for-12 from the beyond the arc. The senior guard had 10 points in the first half, but it was the opening portion of the second that saw him take over, largely due to the absence of the 6-foot-6 Dinwiddie.
A strong defensive effort from Washington (10-6, 2-1) enabled it to hold off a solid Utes team which entered third in the Pac-12 in scoring with an 85.5 points-per-game average. The Huskies limited the Utes to 41.5 percent shooting for the game.
Washington (9-5, 1-0) built a 17-point halftime lead, 40-23, due in large part to its transition game. With Wilcox and Williams-Goss leading the way, the Huskies got up and down the floor to stress the Sun Devils defensively. Washington shot over 60 percent in the first half.
The Huskies concluded their nonconference play with consecutive wins over mid-major squads, this one coming against Hartford, a team from the American East. With Pac-12 play beginning in four days, the Huskies are hoping they are mentally prepared for the challenges to come.
C.J. Wilcox scored 15 points to lead four players in double figures and Washington overcame an overall sloppy performance to escape with a 73-62 win at Tulane on Tuesday night.
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.
Washington senior C.J. Wilcox overcame a quiet first half, scoring 22 of his game-high 28 points after halftime, and the Huskies held off a late rally to beat Montana 83-79 on Tuesday night.
For the Huskies basketball team, avoiding a third straight season without a trip the NCAAs will be the most difficult task going into the 2013-14 season
