SEATTLE —

C.J. Wilcox made a pair of free throws with 3.6 seconds left to help give the Washington Huskies a comeback 74-72 victory over Cal-State Fullerton on Sunday night.

Wilcox, who had a team-high 21 points, was fouled by Alex Harris, just after Harris made a 3-pointer from the right baseline to tie the game at 72.

Husky guard Andrew Andrews also made three free throws inside of 22 seconds to keep the Huskies (4-3) ahead. He finished with 13 points.

D. J. Seeley scored 24 points for the Titans (3-4).

Trailing by 14 points by halftime, the Huskies brought the game back in the second half. Andrews hit a 3-pointer at the 16:48 mark for a 10-point deficit, 50-40, prompting Titans coach Andy Newman to call a quick timeout.

But he couldn't stop the Huskies momentum. With 12 minutes left, Wilcox hit a 3-pointer from the right baseline to draw the Huskies to within six, 55-49.

Fullerton's lead was squeezed to just one point, 55-54, on Wilcox's 12-foot turnaround with 10:22 left.

The Titans built the lead back to seven, 61-54, before the Huskies went on a 13-4 run. Aziz N'Diaye came in from the right side for a crowd-pleasing dunk with 2: 54 left, giving the Huskies their first lead, 67-65.

Andrews' two free throws with 21.5 seconds remaining gave the Huskies a 71-69 lead.

Hikeem Stewart then tipped a Titan pass and Andrews stole it. He was fouled with 10.9 seconds left and made one of two.

Harris hit his trey but quickly fouled Wilcox, an 83 percent free-throw shooter.

The Titans entered the game ranked No. 2 nationally in scoring (91.2 ppg), assists (19.8), field goal percentage (53.8) and 3-point field goal percentage (47.3).

The Titans rolled to a 17-4 lead by the 15:42 mark of the first half. Seeley made 12 of his team's 17 points, including back-to-back three-pointers.

The Huskies, coming out of a timeout, settled down to close the gap with a 16-7 run for a 25-20 deficit inside of 10 minutes left. But within two minutes, the Titans built the margin to double figures and rode it to a 43-29 lead by intermission.

Seeley had 17 points, the only player for either team in double figures. The Huskies shot just 30 percent (9 of 30) in the first half.
