SEATTLE -- Jason Washburn scored 14 of his 18 points in the first half, Brandon Taylor added a career-high 19 off the bench and Utah won its first Pac-12 road game in two seasons as a member of the conference with a stunning 74-65 win over Washington on Saturday night.
The Utes (9-9, 1-5 Pac-12) were winless in conference play this season and having last won a Pac-12 game on Feb. 25, 2012 against Stanford, used hot shooting and a smart defensive plan to take down the Huskies and hand Washington its first conference loss. Washington was trying to start 5-0 in conference play for the first time since 1984.
Instead the Huskies (12-6, 4-1) were left shaking their heads at their execution in the closing minutes that ruined what Washington accomplished winning its first three conference games on the road.
