SEATTLE (AP) Jaden McDaniels scored 20 points, Isaiah Stewart had 16 points and 15 rebounds and No. 22 Washington beat South Dakota 75-55 on Monday night.
Washington won its fourth straight by holding the nation's best 3-point shooting team to 17.4% shooting from beyond the arc. South Dakota entered the game hitting 47.4% of its 3s and featured college basketball's best 3-point shooter, Tyler Hagedorn.
The Coyotes hit just 4 of 23 and the Huskies held Hagedorn, who had hit 18 of 24 3s coming in, without a 3 on five attempts. South Dakota has lost three of four.

KT Corp., the largest telecommunication company in South Korea, began providing 5G network service to the village in June.
Washington held South Dakota scoreless for stretches of more than 3 minutes three times in the first half. The longest was 5:55 and helped the Huskies put together a 13-2 run late in the first half.
McDaniels started the run with a 3 and a turnaround jumper from the baseline, part of a run of 10 consecutive points for the freshman forward. He added a floater on a drive and a 17-foot jumper to end the run and put Washington up 32-23 at the break.
McDaniels' 15 points in the first half had a lot to do with that lead, and so did the Huskies defense. They held the nation's top 3-point shooting team to 3 of 13 (23.1'%) from behind the arc in the first half and 27.3% (9 of 33) overall.
Washington extended the run into the second half, scoring seven straight points to start the period, building a 39-23 lead on a pass from McDaniels to Stewart through traffic for a dunk on the fast break.
House Democrats Unveil Articles of Impeachment Against Trump
House Democrats announced on Tuesday that they would move ahead this week with two articles of impeachment charging President Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, as they accused him of violating the Constitution by pressure Ukraine for help in the 2020 election. Speaking from a wood-paneled reception room just off the floor of the House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and leaders of six key committees said that Mr. Trump’s actions toward Ukraine, and his efforts to block Congress’s attempt to investigate, had left them no choice but to pursue one of the Constitution’s gravest remedies.
Stanley Umude led South Dakota with 17 points, Cody Kelly scored 11 and Hagedorn had 10.
The Coyotes cut the Huskies' lead to four multiple times midway through the second half. But Stewart slammed home his own miss to make it 58-52 with 5:23 left and Washington pulled away from there, finishing the game on a 19-3 run.
Jamal Bey added 14 for the Huskies and Nahziah Carter had 12 points and nine rebounds.
South Dakota: Picked to finish second in the Summit League, the Coyotes showed grit and skill against the Huskies. While it doesn't help the bottom line, the loss will help South Dakota when conference play begins.
Washington: South Dakota offered the Huskies something of a challenge, forcing them to defend the 3 and the paint. Troubling that Washington failed to dominate the smaller Coyotes early in the game. We'll see just how far the Huskies have come when No. 9 Gonzaga comes to town Sunday.
Barr thinks FBI may have acted in 'bad faith' in probing Trump campaign's links to Russia
"I think our nation was turned on its head for three years based on a completely bogus narrative," said the attorney general in an exclusive interview with Pete Williams.In an exclusive interview with NBC News, Barr essentially dismissed the findings of the Justice Department's inspector general that there was no evidence of political bias in the launching of the Russia probe, saying that his hand-picked prosecutor, John Durham, will have the last word on the matter.
South Dakota: The Coyotes return home to play NAIA Mount Marty on Friday after a stretch of four games on the road.
Washington: The Huskies continue a seven-game nonconference homestand with Eastern Washington on Wednesday, their last warmup before hosting No. 9 Gonzaga on Sunday.
