Washington handled its business Thursday, just like Arizona, as the Huskies beat the Arizona State Sun Devils at home, 69-66, via OT. Senior forward Keion Brooks smoked the Sun Devils for 22 points while also recording seven rebounds and three blocks.
In Brooks, the Huskies have a go-to guy who can also get the job done on the glass. Brooks and Cole Bajema each had 16 points in the first meeting with Arizona, and now they’re going to join forces again, this time at home. Washington is 3-0 SU in its last three games at home.
Washington also has won four of its last five games, with the only loss during that stretch coming at the hands of the Utah Utes on the road on Jan. 21.
Arizona’s proved more about its strength of late than the Huskies, with the Wildcats also beating USC and UCLA in some of the games that followed since they took down Washington in Tucson. Taking the Wildcats to win again over Washington.
Prediction: Arizona wins by at least five points.
