SEATTLE (AP) — Mike Anderson scored 19 points and grabbed 16 rebounds as Washington rallied from an eight-point second-half deficit and earned a 92-89 victory over Long Beach State Saturday afternoon.
Anderson converted a free throw with 14.2 seconds left to play to give the Huskies a three-point cushion. Mike Caffey got a clear look at a 3-pointer from the right wing but couldn’t knock down the shot and Washington held on for the victory.
Six Huskies finished in double-figures with Anderson leading the way.
The Huskies trailed 69-61 with 6:23 remaining in regulation after back-to-back baskets from Dan Jennings to extend the lead for the 49ers.
Nigel Williams-Goss hit a 3-pointer and a floater along the baseline on consecutive possessions for Washington to close within 69-66 with four minutes to play. Caffey responded with a 3-pointer of his own from the corner to extend the lead back to six.
