No. 17 Arizona holds off No. 25 Arizona State

Thursday night's game between Arizona and Arizona State in Tempe was interrupted during the second half as the fiery Wildcat cheerleader, who has not been named, was led out of the venue, the Arizona Republic reported.

Even though Arizona State lost the first meeting this season 84-78 at Tucson on December 30, the betting result was a push on the six-point spread in favor of Arizona.

Metu scored 18 points and had 10 rebounds to record his ninth double-double of the season. "Arizona State has a really good team and the environment was equally special tonight". Arizona (21-6, 11-3) needed to win to maintain its stranglehold on first place in the Pac-12, while Arizona State (19-7, 7-7) was trying to solidify its place in the NCAA tournament and build on its momentum from sweeping USC and UCLA last week.

The Buffaloes (15-10, 7-6 Pac-12) are riding a three-game win streak heading into their matchup against the Washington schools on the road, and with an easily attainable win against Washington State in reach, if the Buffs can steal a win against the Huskies, they'll be right in the thick of the conference race.

The Wildcats come down with 44 total rebounds on the night compared to just 28 from the Sun Devils.

Miller, Ayton and Trier spoke outside of the team locker room after the game, here's what they had to say. In the five victories, Arizona's average margin of victory has been 15.2 points. The Cardinal have consecutive games against rival California on Thursday and Saturday. In 36 minutes, he added 20 points, 1 rebound, 4 assists, 1 steal and 1 three with 4 turnovers.

ASU used a 31-6 run spanning the first and second halves to take a seven-point lead, 46-39, just three minutes into the second half.

"I think it is the first time all year in conference play that we held a team under 70 points and held a team under 40 percent shooting from the field", WSU coach Ernie Kent said.

After junior forward Destiny Graham made both free-throws, the Sun Devils went on a 21-1 run for the rest of the third quarter.
