SEATTLE (AP) — Nigel Williams-Goss scored 15 points, and Washington held No. 13 San Diego State to a school record for fewest points in the Huskies' 49-36 win on Sunday.

Andrew Andrews added 13 points as Washington (7-0) posted just its second win over a ranked opponent since 2011.

San Diego State (6-2) shot just 20.4 percent. It was the lowest shooting percentage for the Aztecs dating to 1996 and the second time this season shooting under 25 percent in a game. San Diego State shot 24.6 percent in beating Cal State Bakersfield last month.

The 36 points were the fewest for San Diego State as a Division I program. The previous low was 38 against Utah in 1999.

Andrews hit three 3-pointers in the second half as Washington methodically pulled away. Andrews' third 3 of the half put the Huskies up 43-23 with 6:25 remaining.

The matchup was a chance for Washington to prove its undefeated start wasn't a fluke. Washington improved to 7-0 for the first time since the 2006-07 season and has one major test remaining before the start of Pac-12 play: a Dec. 20 matchup with Oklahoma in Las Vegas.

Robert Upshaw continued to make an impact on the interior for the Huskies with seven points, seven rebounds and four blocks.

Winston Shepard led the Aztecs with seven points. No other San Diego State player scored more than five.

Washington pushed its lead to seven early in the second half when Williams-Goss knocked down a second-chance 3-pointer. Shepard hit a pair of free throws, but Upshaw's baseline hook put the Huskies up 28-21. Upshaw then blocked Angelo Chol's shot and Andrews hit an open 3 for a 31-21 lead with 12:33 left.

Dakarai Allen hit the second of two free throws, but the Aztecs went cold again. Upshaw scored underneath and Andrews came off another screen to hit a 3 with 8:59 left, putting Washington up 36-22.

San Diego State went more than 11 minutes without a field goal, finally breaking the spell on Kevin Zabo's jumper with 2:57 remaining. By that point, the Huskies were up 45-27.

The second-half drought for San Diego State followed a miserable first half. The Aztecs missed their first 10 shots and went 9 minutes without a field goal before Dwayne Polee's 3-pointer with 5 seconds left in the half.

TIP-INS

San Diego State: The Aztecs are going to win because of their defense, but at some point they have to make shots. The Aztecs made just 5 of 30 shots in the first half and were 1 of 9 on 3-pointers. They didn't start the second half any better. The Aztecs missed nine of their first 11 shots to begin the second half.

Washington: Upshaw continued to make a difference at the defensive end. The 6-foot-11 transfer entered with 29 blocks and added four more. His most impressive moment came late in the first half when he swatted Zabo's attempted 19-foot jumper leading to a run-out dunk for Williams-Goss.

UP NEXT

San Diego State hosts Long Beach State on Wednesday night.

Washington hosts Eastern Washington next Sunday. The Eagles won at Indiana earlier this season.
