Washington tried to take a page from Washington State's defensive book, but it was the Cougars showing just how it's done in the final minutes when it counts the most.

Aron Baynes scored 16 points, Kyle Weaver scored 11 of his 13 in the second half, and No. 4 Washington State beat Washington 56-52 on Saturday night, its sixth straight win over the Huskies in the Pac-10 opener for both teams.

It's the Cougars longest win streak over their rival since winning six straight in 1941-42. And much like those games 66 years ago, this one was a physical, grind-it-out affair -- just the way the Cougars like it.

Trailing 48-45 with 6:20 to go, the Cougars (13-0) scored 11 of the final 15 points, using an 8-0 spurt to take the lead on Taylor Rochestie's runner with 3:04 left. From there, it became a free-throw shooting contest, and the Cougars held out, with Weaver making three of four attempts in the final 30 seconds.

Tim Morris led Washington with 16 points, but the transfer from Stanford was scoreless over the final 14 minutes. Jon Brockman added 14 points and 17 rebounds, but the Huskies (9-5) saw their five-game win streak snapped.
