Basketball: UW survives WSU but Wilcox out with stress fracture in hip — doubtful for this week

Huskies’ No. 2 scorer may not be available to face Bears on Thursday . . .

   — Washington 75, Washington State 65: The Huskies (11-6, 4-1 Pac-12) rode 30 points from Terrence Ross — 26 of them in the second half — to a comeback win over the Cougars (9-8, 1-4). Ross needed the big game because sophomore C.J. Wilcox, the team’s No. 2 scorer at 15.5 ppg, was out with a  stress fracture in his left hip. The Seattle Times reported he may miss this week’s games.

  — UCLA 66, USC 47: The Bruins (10-7, 3-2) won their third straight game, limiting the offensively challenged Trojans (5-13, 0-5) to 36-percent shooting at the Galen Center. Twins Travis and David Wear combined for 32 points and 15 rebounds.

  1. What hex did someone put on this conference? C.J. Wilcox is an easy first-team All Pac-12 guy, and was my personal preseason pick for Player of the Year. Horrible luck for Washington (and sounds like a horrible injury, too– how on earth do you fix a stress fracture in a hip? Have the person lie on his side for weeks on end?!?).
