TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - The final game of Arizona Basketball's road-heavy stretch comes Saturday when the 23rd ranked Wildcats conclude a two game stretch in the state of Washington. 
Arizona (18-5) has gone 6-4 in the Pac-12, with six of those games coming away from home.
The Wildcats dropped two of the first three road contests but have climbed back to .500 following Wednesday's 79-64 win over Washington State.
After this visit to Washington, Arizona plays five of its last seven at home. The Wildcats have won 50 of 51 at McKale Center after having the nation's longest home winning streak snapped by Oregon on January 28th. 
Arizona freshman star and Seattle native Allonzo Trier may return Saturday after missing the last seven games with a hand fracture. Trier was Arizona's then leading scorer, averaging 14.8 points per game. 
Ryan Anderson is averaging 22.0 points and 11.3 boards while shooting 72.7 percent in the last three games.
Washington, though, has slowed down a bit by alternating wins and losses in its last four. That .500 stretch can be attributed to a scoring slump from Andrew Andrews, who leads the Pac-12 with 20.6 points per game.
