Wilcox leads Washington over Saint Louis 66-61By TIM BOOTH, AP Sports Writer Thursday, Nov 29, 2012
SEATTLE (AP)—C.J. Wilcox finished 27 points, just off his career-high, Aziz N’Diaye scored 12 of his 14 points in the second half, and Washington snapped a two-game home losing streak by holding on for a 66-61 win over Saint Louis on Wednesday night.
Thinned by injuries, the Huskies (3-3) went just seven players deep, but had enough to overcome the Billikens (3-3) and avenge a 13-point loss last season in St. Louis.
Wilcox had one of the most efficient games in Washington history, hitting 11 of 13 shots, including 4 of 5 on 3-pointers. He just missed his career high of 28 set in Saturday’s home loss to Colorado State. The Huskies avoided their first three-game home non-conference losing streak since 1994.
Cody Ellis led the Billikens with 14 points off the bench. It was Saint Louis’ last game away from home before conference play begins in early January.
