SEATTLE (AP) - Ryan Anderson scored 22 points and grabbed 15 rebounds, Kadeem Allen hit a 3-pointer with 1:01 left as the shot clock expired and No. 23 Arizona held on for a 77-72 win over Washington on Saturday.
Anderson was a force on the inside, making 6 of 12 shots and hitting 10 of 11 free throws, and Allen's big shot gave the Wildcats a 75-70 lead. It was just his second basket of the game after missing his first six shots. Andrew Andrews hit a pair of free throws for Washington, but Anderson came up with an offensive rebound after Gabe York missed a jumper with 23 seconds remaining. Anderson hit both free throws and the Wildcats were able to escape.
York finished with 18 points, including four 3-pointers.
Andrews led Washington (15-8, 7-4) with 20 points, but the Huskies dropped their sixth straight to the Wildcats.
