Huskies Fall In Overtime To Wyoming, 77-72

Nov 18, 2021

SEATTLE (AP) -- Terrell Brown Jr. scored 21 of his 30 points in the second half and overtime for Washington (2-2), but it wasn't enough as Wyoming prevailed, 77-72, to escape Alaska Airlines Arena with a win over a Pac-12 squad.

Brown was all over the court and controlled the Huskies offense in the second half, but missed a chance to win it in regulation when his driving runner in the final seconds rolled off the rim.  

Jamal Bey added 10 points but was the only other Washington player in double figures. Langston Wilson chipped in 8 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in just 19 minutes of action..

Graham Ike scored a season-high 26 points and Hunter Maldonado added 24 points for Wyoming (3-0),

Ike was dominant in the first half before foul trouble caused him to sit much of the second half. But his free throw with 28 seconds left in regulation tied the game at 65-65 and helped force overtime. Ike scored four points early in the extra session as the Cowboys built a six-point lead and held on.

Ike scored 17 in the first half, but picked up his third foul less than two minutes into the second half. He returned with 11:38 left and went to the bench again after picking up his fourth foul on a charge with 10:12 remaining.

Wyoming withstood the Huskies during Ike's first stint on the bench, but couldn't hold off Washington's charge with the Cowboys post presence a spectator.

Washington took its first lead of the second half on a tip-in by Nate Roberts with 9:14 remaining. Washington pushed the lead to 60-54 with 5:50 remaining when Ike finally returned to the floor.

That's when the Huskies went cold, missing some wide open looks and the Cowboys pulled even with 1:54 left on Maldonado's driving basket. Cole Bajema missed an open 3 for Washington and Ike scored inside for a 64-62 lead with 1:02 left.

Brown converted a three-point play to put the Huskies ahead 65-64 with 44 seconds left and Ike split free throws to tie the game and force the extra session.

The Huskies return to action Monday at the Crossover Classic in Sioux Falls, S.D. where they will open a three-games in three-nights stretch against George Mason.
