Arizona Wildcats Knock Off Washington St. 76-72, Win Streak Up To Five Games

The Arizona Wildcats came up big against the Washington St. Cougars on Thursday night and pulled out the road victory by a score of 76-72. The team battled foul trouble throughout the game, but a strong team effort and huge performance from Jesse Perry down the stretch led to the UA's tenth victory in conference play.

Brendon Lavender continued to be a threat off the bench and hit five 3-pointers as he ended with 17 points. Kyle Fogg recorded the first double-double of his career with 16 points and 10 rebounds, while Perry added 14 in just 21 minutes of play. Angelo Chol battled foul trouble for most of the contest, but had a productive night with eight points and three rebounds off the bench.

Brock Motum had a huge night for the Cougars and ended with 28 points and five rebounds. Despite his heroics in the second half, the junior forward missed two of his three free throws with less than a minute remaining and was 3-for-9 in the second half. Point guard Reggie Moore also played very well, scoring 21 points and dishing out four assists.

The Wildcats improved to 10-4 on the season with the win and await the outcomes of the Washington, California and Oregon games. Sean Miller and the coaching staff will now turn their full attention to the Huskies, who loom on Saturday afternoon.
