Washington fends off Arizona St. in 69-66 OT win

SEATTLE (AP) — Keion Brooks scored 22 points and Noah Williams had 18 points, and Washington led most of the way after a slow start to beat Arizona State 69-66 in overtime on Thursday night.

Frankie Collins missed two late 3-pointers for a chance to tie it.

Williams started overtime with a jump shot and two foul shots that wrapped around Brooks 3-pointer and the Huskies led all the way into overtime.

Arizona State freshman Austin Nunez took three foul shots with 0.6 seconds to tie it at 54 after being fouled by Brooks in a 3 attempt to tie it.

The Sun Devils built a 12-0 lead in just over the first five minutes before the Huskies edged Arizona State 20-4 in nearly 10 minutes. Cole Bajema hit three 3s in a five-possession stretch for the Huskies for a 20-16 lead with 4:47 before halftime, and Washington was never behind again.

Washington (13-9, 5-6 Pac-12) continued the offensive attack, beating Arizona State 12-4 and leading 32-20 at the break.
