Wildcats defeat Stanford

Arizona used a consistent effort Thursday night to defeat Stanford 76-68 at McKale.

It's a pattern that no team in the Pac-10 has been able to figure out.

It's a weapon that no team has an answer for.

On Thursday night, Stanford was Derrick Williams' latest victim, as he finished with 23 points and 8 rebounds and Arizona won 76-68.

Williams was able to match Stanford's Landry Fields for the most part, although the UA's defensive effort nearly cost it the game.

Fields finished with 31 points and 11 rebounds as the Wildcats struggled to contain him.

Unfortunately for Stanford, there was not much support for Fields beyond Jeremy Green while Williams was able to get assistance from Kyle Fogg among others.

One look at statistics would give the impression that Arizona had no business winning and that was partly true.

However, Arizona was able to get more shots due to the fact that it forced Stanford in nearly double the turnovers the Wildcats finished with.

With the win, Arizona will have a chance for a share of the Pac-10 lead with a win over Cal this weekend.
