The Arizona mens basketball team defeated the Washington Huskies by a score of 95-79 in Tucson, Arizona. The Wildcats now move to 12-1 on the season and move to 2-0 in Pac-12 games.

This win comes 12 days after Tommy Lloyd’s team lost their first game in Knoxville to the University of Tennessee 77-73. The reason of the long layoff between games for the Wildcats is because their were COVID-19 complications within the UCLA and USC basketball programs forcing the games to be postponed.

Dalen Terry had his first double-double in his college career. He finished the game with 13 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists.

Arizona was terrific from deep during tonight’s game, making 12 three pointers while being 50 percent.
