Derrick Williams may not have shot well Saturday night, but he frankly did not need to.

Williams scored 17 and grabbed 19 rebounds to defeat Washington State 65-63.

Arizona found itself down early in the game, but hung around due to its defense.

The Wildcats only shot 36 percent from the field and turned the ball over 16 times, but hit 11 three pointers.

Lamont Jones played one of his better games of the season, scoring 11 points while dishing out five assists to only one turnover.

Arizona is now in sole possession of third place in the Pac-10.
