TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) Mark Anderson scored 21 points, Kaleb Tarczewski had 16 points and 13 rebounds, and No. 18 overpowered Washington for a 99-67 victory Thursday night.

Playing their first game without star freshman Allonzo Trier (hand), the Wildcats (14-3, 2-2 Pac-12) traded baskets with the athletic Huskies in an entertaining first half before running them over in the second.

Arizona had a 43-26 advantage on the glass against the Pac-12's top rebounding team and shot 60 percent to extend its home winning streak to a nation-best 48 games.

Arizona's Parker Jackson-Cartwright had 11 assists with one turnover and Kadeem Allen scored 13 points.

Washington (11-5, 3-1) played without a key backup on the front line and was no match for the beefier Wildcats inside.

Noah Dickerson had 17 points and Marquese Chriss 13 for the Huskies. Andrew Andrews, the Pac-12's leading scorer, battled foul trouble and scored nine points on 3-of-11 shooting.
