Men’s Hoops hangs tough but falls short in 80-72 loss to ASU

Washington came up short — by one minute to be precise — as Arizona State made six-straight free-throw attempts in the final 58 seconds to help secure the win.

From the opening tip, the Huskies were red hot from beyond the arc, making six threes in the first half and going 11-of-27 from distance on the night.

After back-to-back turnovers, Remy Martin drained a 3-pointer to give the Sun Devils a 72-70 lead with 3:02 left. Cole Bajema’s layup tied the game a minute later, but that was the last time UW would score.

Dawgs use just seven-man rotation, Stevenson & Bajema combine for 24 bench points.
