SEATTLE (AP) - C.J. Wilcox awakened Washington's slumbering offense, scoring all of his career-high 24 points in the second half, and Washington overcame an off night from leading scorer Isaiah Thomas to beat UCLA 70-63 on Thursday night.
Wilcox went to halftime scoreless, then carried the Huskies in the final 20 minutes. He hit his first two shots to start the second half and made 6 of 7 total in the second half, including five 3-pointers.
UCLA's Jerime Anderson tried to match Wilcox, hitting four 3-pointers and finished with 16 points, all in the second half. But the Bruins (21-9, 12-5) fell out of a tie for first place with Arizona in the conference race.Anderson was one of four players in double figures for the Bruins, who had won 12 of their last 14 games entering tonight's action. Malcolm Lee scored 13 points, Joshua Smith, making his first trip to Seattle, had 12 points and a career-high 16 rebounds, and Reeves Nelson added 10 points, eight rebounds and three assists.
