Andrews Leads Huskies to Win Over Utes
Andrew Andrews scored 12 of his 19 points in the final nine minutes, and Washington held on in the final seconds for a 59-57 win over Utah last night in the Huskies conference home opener.
Coming off a split in the desert, Washington could not shake the Utes (12-3, 1-2 Pac-12) until the final seconds when Delon Wright's desperation attempt 3-pointer from the corner was off the mark.
Andrews put Washington in position to get the victory. It was his three-point play with 8:43 left that gave Washington a 44-43 lead and the Huskies never again trailed despite being pushed. C.J. Wilcox added 14 points and Nigel Williams-Goss scored 13 for the Huskies (10-6, 2-1).
Wright led Utah with 27 points and 11 rebounds, but the Utes made 1 of 15 3-point attempts. Utah came in to last night shooting 36 percent on 3s.
