Game thread: Washington 75, Jackson State 67

Jackson State's 2012 odyssey has landed it in Seattle for today's game. The Tigers play their first 11 games on the road this year, picking up checks and losses. They're 0-7 coming in. Head to the jump for the game thread:

> Washington will hang on and want to burn the film of this one. Huskies will move to 6-4. Jackson State to 0-8.

> Williams hits a 3 and Jackson State calls timeout. Washington up 67-64 with 6:12 to go. Huskies already with more turnovers (13) than vs. Seattle U (12).

> Another turnover on the break and Romar is about as mad as we've seen him this year. Washington leads 58-51 with 11:18 to go.

> Kelsey Howard going crazy for Jackson State and, along with UW turnovers, keeping Tigers in it. He has 23 on 10 shots, 4-for-5 from 3.

> Suggs with lefty hook in the lane, then a technical foul on him for something. Not sure what. He doesn't say much.

> Suggs hits a 3 to put Washington up 51-40 with 15:31 left in the second half. He's now 16-for-28 (57.1 percent) from behind the 3-point line this season. His impact when playing can't be overstated. Washington does not have the depth to survive without him on the wing opposite C.J. Wilcox.

> Halftime. N'Diaye's stickback puts Washington up 4034 after a haggard half of basketball.

> Wilcox has 10 points, giving him double-digits in all 10 games and 16 consecutive overall.

> Wilcox 4-for-11 and 0-for-5 from 3. Washington has been sloppy and Jackson State is within four, 33-29.

> Huskies use a 14-0 run to take control and lead 29-15 with 7:52 left in the first half. The lead would be higher, except Washington is just 5-for-10 from the free-throw line.

> Washington has a nice list of get-well in front of it: Jackson State, Cal Poly and Northern Illinois before four consecutive on the road.

> Wilcox hits and Washington is already starting to stretch this out. 23-11 with 11:09 left in the half.

> Jackson State is 1-for-9 early and Washington leads 9-2.

> Simmons immediately pulled as Jackson State gets three offensive rebounds on the first possession.

> In an emotional moment, the Evergreen Heights Elementary School choir sang the national anthem.

> Walk-on Quinn Sterling has a walking boot on his left foot and will not play. As expected, Andrew Andrews will not play, either.
