Washington drops first conference game at Arizona State

White missed the second half of Thursday's game with a leg injury, but showed no ill effects against Washington. "They want me to lead them and I just want to go out there and play hard and lead for them".

Make it an unexpected desert sweep for Robert Franks and the Washington State Cougars. CJ Elleby almost had a triple-double for Washington State in that one with 10 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists.

Molina opened the fourth quarter with a layup and Hristova followed with a fast break bucket and the Cougars (8-16, 3-10 Pac-12 Conference) had the big lead of the game at 69-58.

"It was one of those games where we had to find some energy, we had to find something", Hopkins said.

There are a number of players responsible for the Huskies' success, but we'll focus on just a couple of them. This victory is also the first time since 2010 that the Cougars have beat the Wildcats in Arizona.

"We're fully supportive of the coaching staff, the leadership of the basketball program", Heeke said via ESPN.

The Arizona Wildcats were led in scoring by senior guard Justin Coleman with 16. The Wildcats went just 32 percent from the field.

Borislava Hristova scored 37 points, Chanelle Molina added 28 and blocked a potential game-winning shot at the buzzer and Washington State ended a seven-game losing streak with a 90-88 win over Arizona on Saturday.

"Remy did very well at maintaining his dribble, having good awareness for where their defense was, and then just trying to pick apart where the available play was", Hurley said.

Among UW's remaining opponents, only a handful of teams have a player like Cheatham who can hurt the Huskies.

After coming off of an emotional win over Washington two days before, Arizona was not able to wrap up its Washington road trip with both wins, as Borislava Hristova and Chanelle Molina combined for 65 points on the afternoon to power the Cougars to an upset victory over an Arizona team that looks to be on the bubble regarding the upcoming NCAA tournament.

Arizona got within single digits only once in the second half, 51-42 on Luther's two free throws with nine minutes left.

Edwards bounced back nicely against Washington, scoring 12 points on 5-of-9 shooting with eight rebounds.

Franks had 21 first-half points on 7-of-9 shooting, 5-for-6 3-pointers.

Still absent will be freshman guard Brandon Williams, and Chase Jeter still may not quite be 100 percent healthy.

Matisse Thybulle was 1 of 6 shooting for three points. With a four game cushion, and only three away games left, Washington can start to be penciled in as the top seed come Pac-12 tournament time.

Coach Sean Miller has never had a team lose five in a row before and it's going to be tough sledding for the Wildcats from here on out, especially without Williams. "Coach told us to dominate the paint and I think we did that".

"That's going to be the thing going forward for every game", Hurley said.
