Ten games. Ten wins for Washington. Including two over ranked teams. The latest came Saturday night in Las Vegas. The 16th-rankeed Huskies pulled out a gritty 69-67 victory over No. 15 Oklahoma.

Here’s postgame reaction in the NewsOK and the game story from the Associated Press.

And here’s the box score and updated season statistics.

SUNDAY MORNING LINKS:

— ICYMI, good story on JaQuori McLaughlin. The junior guard, who committed to Washington, has helped turn around No. 7 Peninsula.

— UCLA fell behind 24-0 and never recovered en route to a historic 83-44 beat down by No. 1 Kentucky. The Wildcats led 41-7 at the intermission, the lowest points total in a half for UCLA and the fewest by a Kentucky opponent since December 1943. The Bruins (8-4) converted 19 of 71 shots (.268).  Isaac Hamilton led UCLA with 14 points.

— After Washington’s win at the MGM Grand Arena, No. 14 Utah took the floor and defeated UNLV 59-46. It wasn’t pretty. The Utes (8-2) shot less than 40 percent. But they received big games from Delon Wright (17 points) and Brendan Taylor (16).

— Oregon unveiled a lineup that included three new starters during its 83-70 win over Delaware State. Joseph Young scored a game-high 23 points and Elgin Cook finished with 10 points and 10 rebounds. In his first start, Jalil Abdul-Bassitt added 12 points for the Ducks (8-3).

— Stanford lost 79-77 at BYU. The Cardinal fell behind by 13 points, but battled back and Chasson Randle missed two three-pointers in the final six seconds that could have won the game. Randle finished with 24 points, Stefan Nastic had 20 points and nine rebounds and Reid Travis added 15 points for Stanford, which fell to 6-3.

— Less than two weeks remain before the Pac-12 opener and Arizona State looks a little shaky following an alarming 84-81 triple overtime loss to Lehigh that snapped a 14-game home winning streak. Sophomore guard Chance Murray, who didn’t play in three of the past four games, scored a career-high 17 points for ASU, which dropped to 6-5.
