Huskies fall to USC when shots stop falling, and fall below .500

LOS ANGELES – Without warning, the shots stopped falling for the Washington men’s basketball team midway through the second half of Thursday’s 62-56 loss at USC.

The Huskies led 42-41 with 12:41 left before missing 12 of their next 13 field-goal attempts while the Trojans went on a decisive 14-4 run.

Jonah Matthews capped the spurt with two three-pointers to put USC up 55-46 and effectively seal the seventh straight loss for the Huskies.

Washington (12-13, 2-10) fell under .500 for the first time this season, and its losing skid is tied for the third-longest in school history in the past 65 years.
