Nigel Williams-Goss had 17 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Washington Huskies to a dominant 72-49 victory over the Washington State on Friday night.

Andrew Andrews added 16 points and nine rebounds for the Huskies (16-13, 8-8 Pac-12). Washington never trailed as they controlled the game from the opening tip

DaVonte Lacy was the only consistent scoring option for the Cougars (9-19, 2-14) in the first half. Lacy scored 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting from the field. The rest of the roster shot just 5 of 16 from the field in the half.

Lacy finished with 25 points. After his 3-pointer brought the Cougars within 53-44, Washington answered with a decisive 9-0 run sparked by Williams-Goss to shut the door on WSU.

Washington State shot just 31-percent from the floor, and Lacy was the only player in double-figures for the Cougars.
