Video: UW highlights over Arizona State

Thanks to Patrick Blair for the highlights (above) of Washington’s 60-54 win at Arizona State.
The postgame buzz was all about Tony Wroten Jr., who carried the Huskies to a road win in the desert. Washington (13-7, 6-2) moved into a first-place tie in the Pac-12 with California, Oregon and Colorado.
— Here’s the writeup from the News Tribune, GoHuskies.com, a photo gallery and the box score.
— Arizona State freshman forward Jonathan Gilling, the unfortunate victim of Wroten’s dunk, told the Arizona Republic: “”I really thought we could beat these guys. I don’t think they’re any better than us. They’re maybe more athletic, but I don’t think player for player they’re better than us.” Gilling scored a career-high 20 points.
— FS Arizona does a nice job covering the game with highlights, post-game analysis and a photo gallery.
Jack Magruder at FS Arizona penned a column about Wroten and Gilling.
AROUND THE PAC-12:
— Arizona (14-7, 5-3) lost last Saturday so that meant the one-step-forward-one-step-back Wildcats had to win last night. They not only won, they destroyed Washington State in an 85-61 victory at the McKale Center. It might have been their best game of the season. Kyle Fogg scored 18 of his 20 points in the first half and Solomon Hill had 17 points and 11 rebounds.
— The Cougars (11-9, 3-5) remain winless on the road in the Pac-12 (0-4) and the streak may continue because super sub Faisal Aden sprained his left knee and is doubtful for Saturday’s game at ASU. Without Aden, WSU fell apart against Arizona.
— Colorado (14-6, 6-2) finally got a road win. The Buffaloes beat USC 74-50 and it was a bigger blowout than the score indicates. Andre Roberson had 13 points and 10 rebounds – his 12th double double this season – and Carlon Brown and Askia Booker each had 13 points.
— USC is running out of healthy bodies as its losing streak ran to nine games . The Trojans fell to 5-16 and 0-8.
— Needing a boost, UCLA snapped its two-game losing streak with a rousing 76-49 win over Utah. Joshua Smith scored 14 points and David Wear and Jerime Anerson each added 13 for the Bruins (11-9, 4-4).
— Utah fell big time again. It’s the third blowout defeat in the past four games for the Utes (5-15, 2-6).
— Cal (16-5, 6-2) had the night off. The Golden Bears are preparing for the Big Game against Stanford (15-5, 5-3) on Sunday.
