Huskies Fall To #4 Arizona 92-68 Despite Hot Start

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. 

From that point on, Terrell Brown Jr. took the game over. The Pac-12’s leading scorer lived up to the billing, as he exploded for 16 early points, getting UW out to a 25-11 lead and forcing an Arizona timeout. 

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. 

For Washington, Nate Roberts (10) and Emmitt Matthews Jr. (10) joined Brown Jr. in double figures.
