Per The University of Washington Press Release…
SEATTLE — Looking to win its sixth straight home game on Saturday afternoon, the Washington men’s basketball team started strong but ultimately came up short against No. 4 Arizona by a score of 92-68.
Coming out of the gates strong was Emmitt Matthews Jr., who hit a three and threw down a dunk to get the Huskies out to a quick 7-5 advantage.
In the first half alone, Brown Jr. had 24 points, good for his 14th 20-point effort of the season.
Although the Huskies held a lead for the majority of the first half, the Wildcats would go on a run to end the period and take a 45-36 lead into the locker room.
Arizona would show why it is a top-five team in the second half, shooting 69% from the field and dishing out 14 assists to pull away and ultimately win by 24 points.
The Huskies are back in action next weekend against the Los Angeles schools, first visiting No. 21 USC on Thursday night.
