Arizona Falls to No. 14 Arizona State

Feb. 22, 2009

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Rihards Kuksiks scored 17 points and hit a pair of late 3-pointers as No. 14 Arizona State defeated Arizona 70-68 on Sunday night despite blowing a 17-point second half lead.

Kuksiks connected twice from beyond the arc in the final 2:50, with both shots giving ASU the lead. Jeff Pendergraph had 16 points and 12 rebounds, and he hit the decisive free throws with 25 seconds left for the Sun Devils, who won their fifth straight.

Arizona State (21-5, 10-4 Pac-10) moved within a half-game of first-place Washington, which will host the Sun Devils on Thursday.

Nic Wise scored 17 points for Arizona (18-9, 8-6), which snapped a seven-game win streak.
