C.J. Wilcox scored 23 points, including a 3-pointer with 43 seconds left, leading Washington to an 80-76 win against Oregon on Thursday night.

Wilcox scored six points in the final 2½ minutes as Washington (12-8, 4-3 Pac-12) held off Oregon (13-5, 1-5) down the stretch, extending the Ducks' losing streak to five games. Andrew Andrews added 17 points for UW.

Oregon trailed by seven points with 2:59 to play and cut the margin to 73-72 when Wilcox made his 3 that essentially sealed the win for Washington and ended the Huskies' own two-game skid.

Joseph Young scored 18 points to lead Oregon and scored six points in under a minute to spur Oregon's rally after Washington grabbed the seven-point lead.

Young led the Ducks with 18.0 points per game coming in, but had been held to five points in both of Oregon's last two games against Oregon State and Stanford.
