Jackson State’s 2012 odyssey has landed it in Seattle for today’s game. The Tigers play their first 11 games on the road this year, picking up checks and losses. They’re 0-7 coming in. Head to the jump for the game thread:
> Washington will hang on and want to burn the film of this one. Huskies will move to 6-4. Jackson State to 0-8.
> Williams hits a 3 and Jackson State calls timeout. Washington up 67-64 with 6:12 to go. Huskies already with more turnovers (13) than vs. Seattle U (12).
> Another turnover on the break and Romar is about as mad as we’ve seen him this year. Washington leads 58-51 with 11:18 to go.
> Kelsey Howard going crazy for Jackson State and, along with UW turnovers, keeping Tigers in it. He has 23 on 10 shots, 4-for-5 from 3.
> Suggs with lefty hook in the lane, then a technical foul on him for something. Not sure what. He doesn’t say much.
> Suggs hits a 3 to put Washington up 51-40 with 15:31 left in the second half. He’s now 16-for-28 (57.1 percent) from behind the 3-point line this season. His impact when playing can’t be overstated. Washington does not have the depth to survive without him on the wing opposite C.J. Wilcox.
> Halftime. N’Diaye’s stickback puts Washington up 4034 after a haggard half of basketball.
> Wilcox has 10 points, giving him double-digits in all 10 games and 16 consecutive overall.
> Wilcox 4-for-11 and 0-for-5 from 3. Washington has been sloppy and Jackson State is within four, 33-29.
> Huskies use a 14-0 run to take control and lead 29-15 with 7:52 left in the first half. The lead would be higher, except Washington is just 5-for-10 from the free-throw line.
> Washington has a nice list of get-well in front of it: Jackson State, Cal Poly and Northern Illinois before four consecutive on the road.
> Wilcox hits and Washington is already starting to stretch this out. 23-11 with 11:09 left in the half.
> Jackson State is 1-for-9 early and Washington leads 9-2.
> Simmons immediately pulled as Jackson State gets three offensive rebounds on the first possession.
> In an emotional moment, the Evergreen Heights Elementary School choir sang the national anthem.
> Walk-on Quinn Sterling has a walking boot on his left foot and will not play. As expected, Andrew Andrews will not play, either.
