GAME REPORT – No. 16 Washington 69, No. 15 Oklahoma 67

PLAYER OF THE GAME – Oklahoma opted to focus on limiting Washington in the paint and left Jernard Jarreau open at the top of the key. The junior forward made the Sooners pay while connecting on 6 of 9 field goals for a team-high 12 points. He also had six rebounds and two assists in 31 minutes.

PLAY OF THE GAME – Nigel Williams-Goss lofted a pass at the rim and Robert Upshaw reached up and flushed an one-hand, alley-oop dunk despite being fouled. The basket gave Washington a 53-46 lead with 12:43 left.

 

TURNING POINT – Leading by one point, Washington played phenomenal defense and forced Oklahoma to rely on Jordan Woodard on the perimeter. He’s converted just 2 of 21 three-pointers. His potential game-winner, wasn’t a three-pointer. However, it was long jumper over Andrew Andrews that sailed left with seven seconds left.

QUOTABLE – “If you look, you have to say that we’ve passed every test that’s been put before us in the nonconference up to this point,” – Lorenzo Romar

BY THE NUMBERS:

3 – Washington’s points in the final four minutes.

20 – Washington’s largest lead.

24 – Points off the bench for the Huskies.

UP NEXT – Tulane, 8 p.m. Monday at Alaska Airlines Arena (Pac-12 Networks)
