WHAT WENT WRONG
Salim Stoudamire's wrist injury continues to bother him. The Cats were destroyed on the offensive glass. The team made just 1-6 three pointers. Foul trouble sidelined Stoudamire, Frye and Mustafa Shakur for much of the game. The Huskies took apart the 1-3-1 zone in the first half.
For the first time since 1939 the Wildcats lost three games to one team. That year Arizona lost 3-of-4 games to Arizona State.
Andre Iguodala committed seven turnovers.
Adams' five steals tied a Pac-10 Tournament record held by five other players. The Cats' 85.2% foul shooting surpassed the record of 83% set by the 1988 Washington Huskies.
