Huskies Connect Late From 3 to Sink Upset-minded 49ers
SEATTLE (AP) — David Crisp made all four of his 3-pointers down the stretch and scored 26 points to lead Washington to a 94-88 win over Long Beach State on Tuesday night.
The Huskies (3-1) failed to connect on their first 13 3-pointers — meanwhile the 49ers (1-5) made 10-of-17 from range — but it was the 3-ball that sealed the victory for Washington. UW forced back-to-back turnovers with less than six minutes to play, and Matisse Thybulle followed each with a 3-pointer as the Huskies turned a two-point deficit into a 75-68 lead with 5:10 to play.
Crisp made four from behind the arc en route to his career-high and Markelle Fultz added 21 points. The guards picked up the slack in the second half from Noah Dickerson, had 17 of his career-high 23 points in the first half and grabbed a team-high seven rebounds.
The Huskies didn't lead for the first 17 minutes but went on a 14-2 run — eight from Dickerson — near the end of the half to lead 36-32 at the break.
Evan Payne led Long Beach State with 19 points and Noah Blackwell added 12, making 4 of 5 behind the arc.
