The Washington Huskies continued their steady improvement after a less-than-stellar start to the season, beating the Cal Poly Mustangs Thursday night, 75-62. The win moves the Huskies to 7-4 on the season after starting 2-3.

The Huskies jumped out to a quick 11-2 lead before the Mustangs climbed back in to the game, making it a two-point game midway through the first half. However, the Huskies outscored the Mustangs, 18-6, in the first ten minutes of the second half, which all but put the game away. C.J. Wilcox led Washington with 20 points, six rebounds and five assists. He was one of four starters that scored in double figures. Mustangs forward Chris Eversley led all scorers with 23 points.

The Huskies next host the Northern Illinois Huskies Saturday. They then travel to Storrs, Conn., to take on the Connecticut Huskies next Saturday before starting their conference schedule.
