SEATTLE (AP) Aziz N'Diaye converted a three-point play off an offensive rebound with 34 seconds left, Andrew Andrews led Washington with 20 points off the bench and the Huskies held off Arizona State 96-92 on Saturday night despite 32 points from Sun Devils' freshman Jahii Carson.
The duo of N'Diaye and Shawn Kemp Jr. dominated the interior for Washington (13-9, 5-4 Pac-12), but no rebound or basket was bigger than N'Diaye tapping Scott Suggs' miss to keep the play alive and scoring while being fouled by Jordan Bachynski. The 45 percent free-throw shooter then converted the three-point play.
C.J. Wilcox added a pair of free throws after Carrick Felix missed a 3-pointer, but Carson hit a 3-pointer for Arizona State (17-4, 6-3) and Washington committed a turnover on the inbound with 13 seconds left. Carson drove to the rim but his shot was altered by N'Diaye and came up short.
Wilcox added two more free throws to clinch the victory that snapped Washington's four-game losing streak.
