Arizona State (9-16, 1-12 Pac-10) dropped yet another Pac-10 game to the Washington Huskies (18-7, 10-4 Pac-10) 79-62 tonight at Wells Fargo Arena. ASU suffered their eleventh consecutive loss of the season.

The Sun Devils jumped out to a solid lead early but slowly saw the Huskies come back behind the shooting of Matt Bryan-Amaning and C.J. Wilcox who put up a combined 24 points of the Huskies 43 points at the half. Washington led ASU by 10 at the half.

ASU was able to put together a small run at the start of the second half with the crowd behind them but the Huskies quickly answered pushing their lead up to 21 at one point and coasted to their 18th win of the season, 10th in the Pac-10.

Ty Abbott led the Sun Devils with 15 points while Trent Lockett added nine. ASU shot 39.4 percent (26 of 66) from the field and 23.5 percent (4 of 17) from three. Rihards Kuksiks was unable to play due to a sprained ankle and is questionable for Saturday's game.

The Huskies were led by Matt Bryan-Amaning's double-double. He put up 22 points and 12 rebounds and C.J. Wilcox finished with 16. As a team, Washington shot 44.6 percent (25 of 56), 30.8 percent (8-26) from behind the arc.

Former Sun Devils Lionel Hollins and Byron Scott were honored as their jersey banners were dropped from the rafters at Wells Fargo Arena. Hollins, who played at ASU from 1973-75, and Scott, who donned the Maroon and Gold from 1979-83, garnered All-American honors with the Sun Devils and are members of the ASU Hall of Fame. 

The Washington State Cougars come to Wells Fargo Arena Saturday, February 19 at 12 p.m.
