TUCSON, Ariz. (AP)—Tony Wroten scored 17 points and blocked Josiah Turner’s layup at the buzzer to help Washington hold off Arizona for a 69-67 win on Saturday night.

Washington (14-7, 7-2 Pac-12) led by 11 with just under 6 minutes left before Arizona charged back. The Wildcats tied it at 67-all on Solomon Hill’s 3-pointer with 6.9 seconds left, but Turner was called for a blocking foul.

After C.J. Wilcox hit both free throws, Turner appeared to have an open lane to the basket, but Wroten tracked him down and swatted the ball off the backboard from behind.

Terrence Ross had 16 points and Wilcox finished with 15 in his second game back from a hip injury for the Huskies.

Hill had 28 points and 11 rebounds, and Jesse Perry added 13 points and 12 rebounds for Arizona (14-8, 5-4).
