Arizona, which fell to 11 spots in this week’s Associated Press poll, stopped a two-game slide with a 99-67 win over Washington on Thursday night in Tucson.

Kaleb Tarczewski has been on a tear since returning to the lineup after a foot injury sidelined him for six games. The 7-foot center posted his third consecutive double-double. His performance also included a massive, two-handed dunk over Washington freshman forward Marquese Chriss.

That put the Wildcats up 75-50 inside 10 minutes to go in the second half.

Tarczewski posted 16 points and 13 boards on Thursday night. He’s averaging 10.6 points and 8.7 rebounds per game this season.

Arizona is back in action on this weekend, hosting Washington State on Saturday night.
