Wilcox leads Washington past No. 15 Colorado 71-54

Washington coach Lorenzo Romar has seen this before from C.J. Wilcox. One 3-pointer starts to drop, then another and suddenly Wilcox is hitting everything.

Washington’s sharpshooting guard put on another display yesterday that ended the Huskies’ lengthy losing streak against ranked opponents.

Wilcox set career highs with seven 3-pointers and 31 points, including 21 in the second half, and Washington ran away from No. 15 Colorado for a 71-54 victory. Wilcox topped his previous high of 30 points set earlier this season against Boston College.

But the surprising part wasn’t Wilcox getting hot or the improving Huskies knocking off a ranked opponent playing short-handed after Colorado star Spencer Dinwiddie went down with a knee injury in the first half.

The Huskies outscored the Buffaloes 49-29 after Dinwiddie’s injury.
