PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) Noah Dickerson tipped in a missed layup from Jaylen Nowell with 25 seconds remaining and Washington defeated rival Washington State 72-70 on Saturday night.
Dickerson scored 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for Washington (20-5, 11-1 Pac-12). Nowell added 20 points.
"Dickerson has been big for us. He always has been. Guys have been doing a good job getting him the ball," Washington coach Mike Hopkins said. "I thought in the first half they doubled and he would pass it out to get wide open 3s. You just have to trust it I know it is a little bit boring but sometimes boring is good."
