  • SEATTLE — Nigel Williams-Goss had 17 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Washington to a dominant 72-49 victory over the Washington State on Friday.
    Andrew Andrews added 16 points and nine rebounds for the Huskies (16-13, 8-8 Pac-12). Washington never trailed as they controlled the game from the opening tip.
    DaVonte Lacy was the only consistent scoring option for the Cougars (9-19, 2-14) in the first half. Lacy scored 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting while the rest of the roster shot just 5 of 16 before the break.
    Lacy finished with 25 points to lead the Cougars. After his 3-pointer brought the Cougars within 53-44, Washington answered with a decisive 9-0 run to shut the door.
    Williams-Goss picked off a lazy pass from D.J. Shelton and coasted for a breakaway dunk. After a Mike Anderson 3-pointer and layup from Perris Blackwell, Darin Johnson delivered a two-handed slam after a steal to give Washington a commanding 62-44 advantage.
    WSU shot just 31-percent from the floor for the game.
