Feb. 27, 2010
Stanford, Calif. (AP) - Lamont Jones banked in a game-winning 15-foot jumper at the buzzer and scored a career-high 16 points, lifting Arizona to a 71-69 victory over Stanford on Saturday.
Derrick Williams led the Wildcats (14-14, 8-8) with 24 points, making 8 of 10 shots from the field and 7 of 11 from the line. Solomon Hill had nine points and eight rebounds for Arizona.
Stanford led by as many as nine points midway through the second half, but Arizona rallied and tied the score 64-64 on Hill's inside basket with 4:10 left.
Williams made one of two free throws with 30 seconds left, tying the game again at 69. Williams then blocked a shot by Stanford's Jack Trotter, and Jones delivered the game-winner under heavy pressure, falling to the court as his shot banked home.
