Nick Johnson scored 15 points, five in the final 2 minutes, and No. 8 Arizona rallied from an early deficit for an ugly 57-53 victory over Washington on Thursday night, snapping a three-game losing streak to the Huskies. Mark Lyons and Solomon Hill both added 10 points for the Wildcats, who won their second straight after losing at home to UCLA. This victory by the Wildcats won't be remembered for the quality of play, but Arizona remained just one game behind Oregon at the top of the Pac-12 Conference standings. Arizona trailed 48-46 with 4:34 left after C.J. Wilcox hit Washington's first 3-pointer of the game. The Wildcats (18-2, 6-2 Pac-12) then closed on an 11-5 run and got plenty of help from the careless Huskies. Wilcox and Scott Suggs both scored 11 points to lead Washington (12-9, 4-4), which has lost four straight for the first time since 2008.
