Arizona lost yet another outing versus Pac-12 rival Arizona State Sun Devils most recently as their offense continued to struggle.
Its defense, on the other hand, allowed the Sun Devils to shoot well over 50% from the floor on the night as Remy Martin powered in 31 points in the much-needed victory for the resurgent Sun Devils.
The Huskies are quickly becoming the team to beat within the Pac-12 as they picked up a one-sided victory over the UCLA Bruins in their last outing.
The defense was again the catalyst in allowing the Bruins to shoot dismal from the floor while also forcing them to commit a healthy amount of turnovers to which UCLA could not recover.
Arizona’s offense continues to struggle, despite scoring 88 in their overtime loss to the Arizona State Sun Devils in their last outing, as they were able to battle back from a slim, three-point halftime lead in which to post 50 points in the second half to force overtime.
However, the Wildcats went cold during the extra session as they were outscored 12-5 during this time en route to their third straight loss along with fourth in five games, overall.
Justin Coleman and Ryan Luther led the team with 19 points each as Luther also grabbed nine rebounds on the night while also going 5-8 from long range; However, the defense did not do its part in ensuring a win, as stated.
Leading scorer in Brandon Rudolph, despite posting 17 points versus ASU, surpassed his 15 points per game average in only one of the last six games, while he is currently shooting a miserable 40% from the field.
In their last three outings, Arizona is allowing 90 points per game. On the other hand, the offense, which only averages 73 points on 43% shooting on a nightly basis, has been difficult to watch as despite their offensive explosion versus the Sun Devils, entered the game posting just 65 points per game.
The Washington Huskies are currently ranked within the top 30 teams in the country as it relates to opponent points per game along with opponent field goal percentage.
They are not only a cool 9-1 ATS in their last ten outings, overall, but, the under has also been the play in four of their last five games due to their defense allowing just 61 points during this time.
The Huskies were simply too much for the UCLA Bruins in their last matchup as they forced 22 turnovers on the night while holding a potentially dangerous Bruins squad to just 42% shooting along with 4-15 shooting from long range.
Kris Wilkes was harrassed throughout the contest in going 8-19 from the floor along with 0-5 from three-point range as he led the team with 20 points in defeat.
Washington was not fantastic on the offensive end, either, as they shot 42% as well; However, was able to make good on 11 three point attempts on the night as they cruised to victory behind 15 points from David Crisp along with Jalen Nowell, who are averaging 16 and 12 points, respectively, for the Huskies this season.
Noah Dickerson is currently putting up 12 points per outing as well, however, struggled versus UCLA and is doubtful with an ankle injury for this matchup.

Free Washington Huskies vs Arizona Wildcats NCAAB Prediction:
After playing five of their last seven games on the road, the Wildcats will return to McKale Center, where they have won four of their last five games, to battle a defensive-minded team in the Huskies on Thursday night.
In all, the struggling offense for Arizona will not be able to hold up versus a Huskies squad that has been nothing short of dominant on the defensive end, lately.
And while the Huskies will not score much in the contest, they will make just enough baskets in which to pull out a slim victory over a reeling Wildcats squad on Thursday by a 75-65 score.
4* Free NCAAB Betting Pick: Huskies -1.5
Again, look for the home team to have their fair share of issues in obtaining quality looks versus Washington in this matchup. It is for this reason that I will back the Huskies in this instance as they certainly have the upper hand as their defnese continues to be stingy to opponents.
I also happen to feel as if defense will lead to a some efficient offense as the Huskies will certainly put some points on the board in transition due to yet another horrible shooting night for the Wildcats.
