Wilcox scores 27 in Huskies’ win over Stanford

STANFORD, Calif. – C.J. Wilcox scored 27 points and made a pair of crucial 3-pointers as Washington held off Stanford 65-60 in a Pac-12 men’s basketball game Saturday night.

Aziz N’Diaye added 14 points as the Huskies (11-5, 3-0) opened conference play with three straight wins on the road for the first time since 1912. Desmond Simmons added 13 rebounds.

Dwight Powell scored 19 points to lead the Cardinal (10-7, 1-3), who have lost three of four.

The lead changed hands 15 times and was tied on nine occasions before the Huskies gained a foothold early in the second half.

Wilcox, who finished a point shy of matching his career high, hit a 3-pointer to give Washington a 52-44 advantage, the largest lead of the night, with 9:56 remaining.

The Huskies went scoreless for the next four minutes. The Cardinal had several chances to tie it, but managed only to cut the lead to 52-50 before another Wilcox 3-pointer broke the drought.

Chasson Randle hit a jumper to tie it again at 58 with 3:26 left, but Washington hit four free throws to regain the lead.
