Huskies Beat Utes 59-57

Seattle,  WA (SportsNetwork.com)  – Andrew  Andrews  scored 19  points as  the  Washington Huskies held on to defeat the Utah Runnin’ Utes, 59-57, in a Pac-12  Conference affair at Alaska Airlines Arena.    Also  scoring  in double figures for  the Huskies (10-6, 2-1 Pac-12) were C.J.  Wilcox  and  Nigel Williams-Goss with 14  and 13 points, respectively. The win  was the fourth in the last five outings for Washington.    The  Utes  (12-3, 1-2)  were paced by  Delon Wright who  scored a game-high 27  points  and also  pulled down 11 rebounds  as he played all 40 minutes for the  visitors.  The  only other Utah  player to score  in double figures was Jordan  Loveridge  who  tallied 10  as the  group bowed  for the  second time in three  games.    Utah  fell behind by eight points right out of the gate and didn’t score until  Loveridge knocked down a pair of free throws at the 13:40 mark. The first made  field  goal for  the  Utes didn’t  arrive  until a  minute  later when  Wright  converted  a  layup. Playing catch-up in  the first half, Utah trailed by five  points at the break, 26-21.    Wright  had a  chance to  win the  game for  the Utes  but, with  the visitors  trailing  by two  and the  clock ticking  down, his  3-point attempt  from the  corner sailed over the rim at the buzzer.    The  Utes made their one and only 3-point basket, on 15 attempts, in the final  minute of the meeting.    01/09 01:46:05 ET
