Essentially, Washington made one more play than Colorado for its 52-50 win Thursday at Coors Events Center.

The Huskies can thank Andrew Andrews for his late-game heroics that included forcing a turnover, draining the game-winning shot and preventing the Buffaloes from getting up a shot at the very end. Check out the highlights via the Pac-12 Networks.

Here’s the game stories in the Daily Camera, Denver Post and Associated Press.

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

FRIDAY MORNING LINKS:

— Stanley Johnson had 19 points and seven rebounds, and No. 7 Arizona handed Stanford its first home loss of the season with an 89-82 victory. Brandon Ashley added 17 points while playing with foul trouble in the Wildcats’ 10th straight win in the rivalry. Arizona (17-2, 5-1 Pac-12) tied the game at 52 with 14:34 left on Ashley’s three-point play and went ahead on his 3-pointer the next time down the floor in a decisive sequence that helped the Wildcats pull away.

Chasson Randle scored 26 points and became just the third Stanford player to reach 2,000 points and 15th in conference history. UCLA’s Jason Kapono was the last to reach the milestone, in 2003. Randle finished with a game-high 26 points and Anthony Brown added 18 points and nine rebounds as the Cardinal (13-5, 4-2) dropped to 9-1 at home in Maples Pavilion and had a three-game winning streak snapped with just their second defeat in nine games.

Gary Payton II had 18 points and five steals as Oregon State, which led by 17 points, held off a furious UCLA second-half rally to win 66-55. Malcolm Duvivier added 19 points for the Beavers, (13-5, 4-2), who are undefeated at home this season in 11 games.

— UCLA was down 47-30 with 9:28 remaining, but closed to within 52-50 with 2:35 left. Bryce Alford scored 18 and Norman Powell added 13 and 10 rebounds for the Bruins (11-8, 3-3).

— After giving back a comfortable second-half lead against USC, the foul line proved to be Oregon’s salvation as the Ducks made a season-high 25 free throws to hold on for a 75-67 victory. Joseph Young scored 19 points and Elgin Cook added 15 to lead the way as the Ducks (13-6, 3-3) snapped a two-game Pac-12 losing streak with their ninth consecutive win over the Trojans.

— After trailing by as many as 15 points twice early in the second half, USC (9-9, 1-5) fought back behind Katin Reinhardt (16 points) and Nikola Jovanovic (10 points and 10 rebounds) to pull even at 61 with 5:40 left after Julian Jacobs (16 points) converted a three-point play. However, the Trojans were outscored 14-6 down the stretch. Jordan McLaughlin added 14 points.

Bo Barnes matched his career high with 17 points off the bench, Kodi Justice had 16 and Arizona State pulled away with a big run in the first half to beat California 79-44. The Sun Devils (10-9, 2-4 Pac-12) scored 22 unanswered points and held the Golden Bears scoreless for more than 13 minutes in the first half to win their second consecutive win after opening conference with four straight losses.

Jordan Matthews had 11 points and five rebounds for California (11-8, 1-5). It’s the second-worst home loss in school history.
