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.

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.
