No. 23 Auburn pulls away in the second half and outscores Washington 84-61

SEATTLE (AP) – Jaylin Williams scored 14 of his 18 points in the first half, Johni Broome also scored 18, and No. 23 Auburn ran away in the second half to an 84-61 win over Washington on Wednesday in the evening.

Auburn (10-2) closed out a two-game trip to the West Coast and bounced back in impressive fashion after losing last Sunday in Southern California. It was the final tune-up for the Tigers before the start of Southeastern Conference play next week.

Chris Moore added 12 points and Wendell Green Jr. added 11 for Auburn, which shot 21-of-29 (72.4 percent) in the second half and led by as many as 27.

Keion Brooks Jr. led Washington (9-4) with 15 points and Koren Johnson scored 12, but it was a disappointing effort and another missed opportunity for the Huskies to get an eye-catching win.

It was the Huskies’ first non-conference home game against a ranked opponent other than Gonzaga in eight years and Washington fell, sending fans to the exits with plenty of time in the second half.
