WASHINGTON 72, WASHINGTON ST 68

SEATTLE (AP) -- Scott Suggs hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 4
minutes remaining and finished with 23 points, and Washington
beat rival Washington State 72-68 on Sunday, handing the Cougars
their ninth straight loss.
Suggs' 3 from the top of the key snapped a 57-all tie. It was
his fifth 3-pointer, tying his career high, and he added four
more free throws as the Huskies (16-13, 8-8 Pac-12) took a 65-57
lead with 2:28 remaining. Washington won consecutive games for
the first time since early January when the Huskies started
conference play 4-0 before losing eight of nine.
Washington won its fifth straight over the Cougars.
Brock Motum and Royce Woolridge led Washington State (11-18,
2-14) with 18 points each, but the Cougars' worst slide since
the 2002-03 season continued.
