NEW ORLEANS — C.J. Wilcox scored 15 points to lead four players in double figures and Washington overcame an overall sloppy performance to escape with a 73-62 win at Tulane on Tuesday night.
Balance, and better than 50 percent shooting until late, made the difference for the Huskies (6-4). Nigel Williams-Goss and Perris Blackwell added 12 points and Mike Anderson had 10.
Jonathan Stark had 24 points, 17 in the first half when he kept Tulane (5-6) in the game. Louis Dabney added 16.
Tulane scored the first basket but then proceeded to shoot 32 percent in the first half, including a 1-9 performance from 3-point range and 13 of 21 from the foul line. Despite battling foul problems and turnovers, UW shot 56 percent, leading 41-32 when Wilcox dropped a half-court buzzer beater. The Green Wave shot better in the second half and got within three on Dabney's three-point play at 12:40.
