The Washington Huskies completed a home sweep of the UCLA Bruins and USC Trojans to take sole possession of first place in the Pac-12 Conference. The Huskies were down 10 points to the Bruins with six minutes remaining on Thursday night, but ended the game on a 16-4 run. Washington has won five straight games.
The top three teams in the conference all hit the road next week, so the standings could be even tighter at the close of play next week.
