SEATTLE (AP) - Terrence Ross overcame an awful first half of shooting to score 26 of his career-high 30 points in the second half, Darnell Gant added 10 of his 13 during Washington's decisive second-half run, and the Huskies rallied from 10 points down in the second half to beat rival Washington State 75-65 on Sunday night.
Ross was the catalyst behind the Huskies' 26-6 run that erased a 47-37 deficit with 12:16 left and gave Washington (11-6, 4-1 Pac-12) its biggest lead at 63-53 on Ross' fifth 3-pointer of the night with 5:15 remaining.
Ross scored eight points during the run, and then for good measure added a step-back 3-pointer and an alley-oop dunk three-point play to give the Huskies an 11-point lead with 3:09 left.
Faisal Aden led Washington State with 18 points, but the Cougars (9-8, 1-4) went eight minutes of the second half with just one field goal.
