PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) -Chase Budinger scored 22 points and Jerryd Bayless had all 20 of his points in the second half to help Arizona upset No. 17 Washington State 65-55 on Saturday night.
Jordan Hill added 13 for the Wildcats (17-10, 6-8 Pacific-10), who avoided a third straight loss. The Wildcats are trying to keep alive their streak of 23 straight NCAA tournament appearances.
Taylor Rochestie scored 14 points, Derrick Low added 12, and Kyle Weaver had 10 for the cold-shooting Cougars, who hit just 17-of-50 (34 percent) of their shots.
Arizona, meanwhile, hit 23-of-46 shots, including 8-of-14 3-pointers to make several runs after the Cougars came close.
Arizona swept Washington State (21-6, 9-6) in the series. The Wildcats won 76-64 in Tucson on Jan. 24.
Arizona held a 24-23 lead at the half after Weaver missed a chance to tie with seven-tenths of a second when his second free-throw clanked off the rim.
