Stanley Johnson scored 20 points and T.J. McConnell posted his first double-double in an Arizona uniform as the seventh- ranked Wildcats traveled to Alaska Airlines Arena and routed Washington, 86-62. McConnell followed up his season-high 25-point performance in a loss to Arizona State with 10 points, 10 assists and five rebounds as Arizona (21-3, 9-2 Pac-12) bounced back to win for the seventh time in eight games. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson gave Arizona fans a scare when he took a nasty fall on a breakaway late in the first half, but he shook it off and added 17 points and nine rebounds. Gabe York netted 13 points off the bench. The struggles continued for the Huskies (14-10, 3-9), who shot just 35.2 percent and lost their sixth straight game. The losing streak coincided with the dismissal of star center Robert Upshaw, who was leading the nation in blocked shots when he left the program on Jan. 26 following a violation of team rules. Washington is 0-5 without Upshaw. Andrew Andrews tallied 18 points and 11 rebounds in the setback.
