Third time is the charm for Washington

Washington State gave Washington everything they could handle but in the end the Huskies ended up pulling out a come from behind 89-87 win. Mark it down as one of the best games of the season. It was enjoyable for fans of both teams from start to finish and in the end it was tough to watch one of these teams lose.

WSU's Klay Thompson was almost unstoppable all night finishing with a tournament record 43 points. Washington countered with balanced scoring from Isaiah Thomas (21), Terrence Ross (17), Matthew Bryan-Amaning (16), CJ Wilcox (16) and Justin Holiday (12).

WSU took control of the game from the onset and the Huskies had to fight to stay withing striking distance for the majority of the night. The Huskies never grabbed the lead until early in second half. Pressure defense and better play in the middle is what turned the tide for Washington.

The Huskies face the Oregon Ducks tonight who knocked off UCLA 76-59 earlier yesterday evening. Arizona plays USC in the other semi final game. The winners will square off on Saturday.
