SEATTLE (AP) — C.J. Wilcox scored 24 points in his final regular-season game and Andrew Andrews added 19 as Washington held off a late charge from Southern California for an 82-75 win Saturday.

The senior guard, No. 2 on the school's all-time scoring list, was honored before the game as part of the Senior Day festivities. After a quiet first half, he helped spark a big run to start the second that gave the Huskies a double-digit lead they hung on to at the end.

Nikola Jovanovic had 21 points and eight rebounds and Byron Wesley scored 19 for USC, which lost for the 11th time in 12 games.

After an ugly first half for both teams, Washington came out after halftime finally able to take advantage of USC's mistakes. Trailing by two to start the second half, the Huskies opened the period with a 15-0 run to go up 50-37.
