Morning links: C.J. Wilcox delivers at the end

It’s an old-school, quick turnaround for the Huskies which has less than 48 hours to put Thursday’s big 80-76 win over Oregon behind them and move on to Saturday’s 2 p.m. contest against Oregon State.

Still, there’s still plenty of buzz about C.J. Wilcox’s fantastic 23-point performance, which included a clutch three-pointer with 44 seconds left.

In case you haven’t seen it, here’s the video highlights (above) from Fox Sports 1. And here’s a post-game interview with Wilcox, who talks about his big shot.

And here’s a photo gallery from Dean Rutz at the Seattle Times and the Associated Press.

And here’s the game stories in the Oregonian, Everett Herald, the AP, UW Daily and
