If Arizona can push the rewind button back a few weeks, everything will be just fine for the Wildcats on Wednesday night against Washington.

On Jan. 31, in a 57-53 UA win over the Huskies in Seattle, UA guard Nick Johnson and his teammates all but muzzled UW sharpshooter C.J. Wilcox. The Pac-12’s sixth-leading scorer in conference games, Wilcox collected 11 points the hard way, shooting just 4 for 16 from the field and hitting only one of the five three-pointers he took.

Collectively, the Huskies were just 3 of 16 overall from three-point range, saving UA from its own offensive inefficiency (35.1 percent shooting and 17 turnovers).

It was a game the Wildcats won with defense and hustle, the kind of game they may need to make a deep postseason run.
