Huskies Snap Losing Streak With Win Over Stanford
C.J. Wilcox overcame a poor shooting night to finish with 17 points, Desmond Simmons drew a crucial charge against Stanford's Chasson Randle with 5.3 seconds remaining, and Washington held on for a 64-60 win over Stanford last night, snapping a three-game losing streak.
Wilcox made just 4 of 14 shots, but played all 40 minutes as the Huskies (14-11, 6-6 Pac-12) won for the first time since Jan. 25. Wilcox hit a pair of free throws with 4.1 seconds left for the final margin.
Those free throws came just moments after Simmons stepped in front of Randle and drew the important offensive foul against Randle. Simmons finished with only four points, but had seven rebounds and the biggest defensive play of the game.
Dwight Powell led Stanford (15-8, 6-5) with 18 points and Randle added 17, but just four in the second half.
