Desmond Cambridge Jr. hit a 3-pointer to give Arizona State (13-3, 4-1 Pac-12) 28-26 lead at intermission and his brother Devan Cambridge scored 12 points in the first 10 minutes of the second half as the Sun Devils stretched their lead to 14 points. Keyon Menifield converted a traditional three-point play to cut Washington’s deficit to 54-46 with 6:48 to play, but Devan Cambridge checked back into the game and moments later took a steal the other way for a dunk, assisted on a 3 by Frankie Collins and then threw down an alley-oop from Collins to make it 61-46 less than 2 minutes later.

The Huskies scored 12 consecutive points in the final 77 seconds.
