Terrell Brown Jr., the Pac-12's leading scorer, put on a show for the home crowd in Seattle with 26 points, leading the Washington Huskies to a 60-58 win over the Colorado Buffaloes Thursday night.

Brown scored 17 points in the first half, then helped the Huskies (10-8, 5-3 Pac-12) go up by as many as 15 points in the second half before Washington almost gave the game away in the closing minutes.

Emmitt Matthews Jr. added 15 points and 11 rebounds for Washington, which did not score a point in the final 4:18 of the game. Jabari Walker's 14 points and nine rebounds led Colorado (13-7, 5-5), but the Buffaloes made just 34 percent of their shots for the game.

The Huskies used an 11-2 run to start the second half, which turned into a 21-5 run as Washington went from trailing by one at halftime to surging out to a 52-37 lead.

During that stretch, Brown scored on three straight layups, all off steals by himself and teammate Jamal Bey.

Nate Roberts dunked a lob from Cole Bajema with 9:54 to play, giving the Huskies the 52-37 lead.

But Colorado, which looked finished when down 57-42 with 8:27 left, had a run left in it and made things interesting in the late going. The Buffaloes made it a six-point game, 59-53, on Walker's dunk with 4:45 to play.

Julian Hammond III missed a good look at a 3-pointer with 2:34 left that would have cut the Huskies' lead to four, but Colorado's Elijah Parquet hit the needed 3 for a 60-56 Washington lead with 1:24 to play.

Then Hammond was fouled after a missed free throw and made both free throws with 58 seconds left. Colorado had one chance to force overtime, but Walker missed a short contested jumper and Washington's Daejon Davis got the defensive rebound and dribbled out the clock.

Colorado led by as many as seven points in the first half, before Washington trimmed the lead to one, 32-31, at halftime. Brown drove for a layup with two seconds left for the half's last points.
