SEATTLE (AP) -- Scott Suggs scored 18 points and redshirt freshman Jernard Jarreau added a career-high 12 to lead Washington to a 65-57 win over USC on Wednesday night.

Jarreau and the Huskies (17-13, 9-8 Pac-12) combined to make 17 consecutive free throws over the final 17:40, following five consecutive misses to start the game.

Andrew Andrews scored five of his seven points in the final 2:07. Suggs scored 11 of his 18 points after halftime, making 8 of 13 shots for the game.

Washington won its third straight game after losing eight of its previous 10.

The Trojans (14-16, 9-8) shot just 37.5 percent from the field for the game.
