UA loses five straight for first time in 35 years

The Huskies led 11-7 with about 15 and a half minutes left in the first quarter, and the four-point lead was the best Washington had all game. 3-Point Goals - Washington St. 9-24 (Franks 7-9, Elleby 2-4, Daniels 0-1, Robinson 0-2, Cannon 0-2, Ali 0-4), Arizona 6-22 (Luther 3-9, Smith 2-3, Coleman 1-4, Doutrive 0-1, Jeter 0-1, Randolph 0-1, Barcello 0-3).

Make it an unexpected desert sweep for Robert Franks and the Washington State Cougars.

The Huskies dropped their first conference game of the season when they played at Arizona State on Saturday night, 75-63.

"Once we get it figured out, which we did, we're a pretty good team", Franks said.

Washington State (10-14, 3-8 Pac-12) swept the Arizona schools on the road for the first time since the 2006-07 season and won in Tucson for the first time since January 8, 2010. "The key thing now is to keep it at that level now that know, have seen and experienced the blueprint". The Cougars held the Wildcats scoreless over five and a half minutes, giving WSU a 10-0 lead before Arizona (14-10, 5-6) got on the board. "Unbelievable feeling right now for us". The Wildcats went just 32 percent from the field.

On Thursday night, the Washington Huskies beat Arizona in Tucson 67-60 while Arizona State was blown out at home by the Washington State Cougars, 91-70.

"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. "Just hats off to my teammates and my coaches, just believing in what we can do, playing hard and buying in, and anything is possible". A big piece of that recruiting class is Nico Mannion who recently re-confirmed his commit to Sean Miller and the Arizona Wildcats. "He's certainly one of the better offensive players that plays college basketball".

The Wildcats shot 27 percent (9 of 33) in the first half, trailing 33-21 at the break.

UFC 234: Israel Adesanya defeats UFC legend Anderson Silva
Originally billed as the co-main event, the Adesanya-Silva showdown was elevated to main event status, and it didn't disappoint. It's one of those situations, had it popped up during the fight it could have been fatal for him so this is really serious.

With Cheatham dishing, it led to a cavalcade of dunks for the Sun Devils, who finished with eight dunks - three from Romello White (17 points), three from Cheatham and one each from Luguentz Dort (15 points) and De'Quon Lake.

Senior guard David Crisp was second in scoring with 17, despite it being his second worst night of shooting in conference play.

Franks led the team with 20 points at halftime.

Arizona State had no trouble getting shots to fall early against Washington, going 14 of 24 in the first half.

Matisse Thybulle was 1 of 6 shooting for three points.

White missed the second half of Thursday's game with a leg injury, but showed no ill effects against Washington. Arizona athletic director Dave Heeke also talked at halftime to discuss his support of the program.

"We fought for the entire game, never gave up", Dickerson said.
