Arizona Wildcats Bear Down Defensively Against Stanford Cardinal

The Arizona Wildcats have life once again after sweeping the Bay Area schools. Most felt the UA would be swept by California and Stanford, but a huge defensive effort led the Wildcats to a 56-43 victory over the Cardinal. The win improves Arizona to 7-4 in conference play, and three of their four losses have come by two points or fewer.

STANFORD, Calif. -- Kyle Fogg scored 14 points to help Arizona beat Stanford 56-43 on Saturday.

Jesse Perry added 11 points and Nick Johnson and Solomon Hill had 10 each for the Wildcats (16-8, 7-4 Pac-12), who have won two in a row for the first time since a three-game winning streak at the end of December.

Josh Owens, Aaron Bright and Chasson Randle scored 10 points apiece for the Cardinal (16-7, 6-5), who have lost four of their last five since being in a tie for first place in the conference.

Stanford struggled with its worst field-goal percentage of the season, 25.4 percent. Arizona wasn't much better, but the Wildcats made six of their final eight shots to pull away.

The Wildcats led by eight with 5:35 remaining in the first half. Stanford tied the game at 23 before a free throw gave Arizona a 24-23 edge at the intermission.
