Washington sent the cross-state rival Washington State Cougars back to Pullman with a 72-49 victory in which they were dominant throughout. The UW's duo of Nigel Williams-Goss and Andrew Andrews led the way for the Huskies, as they were able to salvage a split of the season series with WSU.
The Huskies went 1-1 against the Bay Area schools this week, beating Stanford 64-60 and losing to Cal 72-59. The loss to the Golden Bears was Washington's first home conference loss of the season, dropping its record to 14-12, 6-7 Pac-12.
The Washington men's basketball team took care of business at home against both Oregon schools. In the 80-76 win over Oregon, C.J. Wilcox led the way for the UW as he scored 23 points including the clinching three-pointer in the final minute of the game. Nigel Williams-Goss poured in 32 points in the next game against the Beavers, setting a new career high as the Huskies pulled out the 87-81 victory.
The Washington men's basketball team took both games against the mountain schools, defeating Utah 59-57 and Colorado by a score of 71-54. The two game home stand improves the Huskies' record to 11-6 (3-1 Pac-12), and also featured their first win against a ranked opponent since Isaiah Thomas' "cold-blooded" jumper knocked off then-No.16 Arizona in the 2011 Pac-10 Tournament Championship. Andrew Andrews had 19 points against the Utes and C.J. Wilcox dropped 31 on Colorado.
