If the oddsmakers' predictions hold true, the near future looks bright for Arizona. They and the Washington Huskies will face off in a Pac-12 battle at 2:00 p.m. ET on Saturday at McKale Memorial Center.

Arizona unfortunately witnessed the end of their six-game winning streak on Thursday. They fell just short of the Cougars by a score of 77-74.

The loss doesn't tell the whole story though, as several players had good games. One of the most active was Caleb Love, who scored 27 points along with five assists and two steals. The team also got some help courtesy of Oumar Ballo, who dropped a double-double on 16 points and 11 rebounds.

Meanwhile, it may have taken overtime to finish the job, but Washington ultimately got the result they hoped for on Thursday. They narrowly escaped with a win as the team sidled past the Sun Devils 84-82. Having run the score up that high, both teams probably have some extra defensive drills coming up.

Multiple players turned in solid performances to lead Washington to victory, but perhaps none more so than Koren Johnson, who scored 17 points along with seven assists and two steals. Braxton Meah was another key contributor, dropping a double-double on 13 points and 14 rebounds.

The Wildcats' loss ended a 13-game streak of wins at home and dropped them to 20-6. As for the Huskies, they have been performing well recently as they've won three of their last four matchups, which provided a nice bump to their 15-12 record this season.
