No. 1 Arizona on a big roll

January 27, 2014

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) Arizona was expected to lose several times early this season.

The Wildcats passed every test and now it's going to be hard to pick against them.

With a 65-56 victory over Utah on Sunday night, Arizona stretched its winning streak to a school-record 20 games.

Long, athletic and versatile, the Wildcats have been No. 1 in The Associated Press poll for two months and have found ways to win even when they don't play their best.


Arizona's list of wins includes Duke in the preseason NIT, along with San Diego State, Michigan and UCLA on the road. The Wildcats have raced through the Pac-12 schedule, winning their first seven games and have 11 left, starting with Stanford on Wednesday.
