Washington State struggles to score late, Huskies take season sweep

Looking to build on their road sweep of the Arizona Schools, Washington State can’t score late after leading most of the game against rival and PAC12 leader, Washington, falling 72-70.

The first matchup in Seattle turned into an 18-point win for the Huskies, but the Cougs were without Robert Franks.

He helped less than WSU might have hoped tonight. With just three points at half time, the Dawgs held Franks to 5-10 for 16 points after he came off back-to-back 34 point games at the Arizona schools.

The Cougs led for a majority of the game, and took an 11-point lead in the second, but they were held scoreless for the final two and a half minutes aside from a bank-three from Franks with 2 seconds remaining.

UW wins by two in Pullman, led by Jaylen Nowell with 20 points, Noah Dickerson had 18.

WSU was led by Marvin Cannon with 25, freshman CJ Elleby was held to 5 points, and committed 5 turnovers.
