    Justin Billingslea scored eight of his 14 points in the first half as the Panthers (3-8, 1-3) jumped to a 27-21 lead.

    Barea and James each had five points during a 14-0 run late in the first half as the Huskies pulled ahead 39-30. The Huskies took the lead for good when Barea found Janon Cole open for a layup that made it 32-30 with 5:40 left in the half.

    Cole had eight rebounds and scored seven of his nine points in the first half.

    The Huskies led 43-38 at halftime but opened the second half on an 18-3 run.
