The Arizona Wildcats will try to snap their seven-game conference losing streak tonight when they take on Colorado at McKale Center.

Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m.

The UA (11-12 overall, 3-9 Pac-12) last won Jan. 18 at Utah. Two days later, Colorado thumped the Wildcats 79-36 in the team's most lopsided loss of the season. Arizona is led by guard Davellyn Whyte, who averages 16.4 points and 5.6 rebounds per game. Guard/forward Kama Griffitts is averaging 12.3 points per game.

Senior guard Chucky Jeffery leads Colorado (18-5, 7-5) with 13.7 and 8.6 rebounds per game. The Buffaloes allow 53.7 points per game.

The Wildcats will face Utah on Sunday, then embark on a unique "rivalry week." Arizona will face Arizona State on Tuesday night in Tucson, and again Feb. 23 - four days later - in Tempe.

Arizona and ASU are currently tied, along with Oregon State, for ninth place in the Pac-12.
