Huskies Lose Two OT Thriller To WSU

Washington (16-15 overall, 7-11 Pac-10) was handed its seventh consecutive defeat in the series when the 23rd-ranked Cougars (23-7, 11-7) scored the first four points in the second extra period and didn't let up winning the contest 76-73.

Just like the first encounter earlier this year the two teams fought from the tipoff to the very end of the game with the Cougars prevailing in the end.

While the Huskies lost the game, they may have lost something even more important, Jon Brockman hit the floor hard after going up for a rebound with 1:56 left and had to be carried off. No word yet on the severity of the injury, but it could be the end of the season for Brockman who is one of the top rebounders in the country.
