Cougars Defeat Huskies, 80-69

On Oscar night, the best performances belonged to Klay Thompson and DeAngelo Casto.

The best picture? The Cougars winning 80-69 at Alaska Airlines Arena.

Thompson scored 26 and Casto hit another double-double with 20 points and 13 rebounds as the Cougars held off a frantic Husky run in the final minutes of the game.

Washington was led by 21 from Isaiah Thomas.

The Cougs led by as much as 21 before a flurry of Husky threes and free throws cut the lead to as little as six with 4:04 to play. However, the Cougs locked down on defense down the stretch, and buried their free throws to silence the Husky crowd and snuff out any possibility of a comeback.

The final score doesn't show just how different the two halves were tonight. WSU outscored the Huskies 24-17 in the first half. The second half? A barnburning 56-52 result in favor of the Cougars.
