Cats lose to WSU, 70-63


From Staff and wire reports

The No. 11 Wildcat men's basketball team fell to Washington State 70-63 Saturday in McKale Center, giving the Cougars their first win against Arizona in 39 tries.

With the game tied and just over a minute to play, WSU senior guard Thomas Kelati hit a 3-pointer with 52 seconds left to seal the victory for the Cougars (9-9 overall, 4-5 Pacific 10 conference). Kelati made seven 3-pointers en route to 27 points.

The Wildcats (17-4, 7-2) had multiple looks in the last minute, but were unable to convert any shots after Kelati's trey. The UA shot 34.6 percent (9 of 26) from the floor in the second half and were just 2 of 11 (18.2 percent) from 3-point range.

Sophomore point guard Mustafa Shakur led all Wildcat scorers with 12 points, and sophomore forward Ivan Radenovic had his third double-double of the season with 11 points and 10 rebounds.

The Wildcats briefly had the lead three times in the first half before going ahead of the Cougars at 32-30 with a minute to go before the break. Arizona eventually went into halftime with a 34-33 lead.

Junior guard Chris Rogers did not play in the game due to disciplinary reasons, according to head coach Lute Olson. Olson also said that he did not allow Rogers to practice on Friday.
