Four others have just one blemish on their home court records this season - ARIZONA STATE (14-1), COLORADO (15-1), UCLA (15-1), and UTAH (16-1).
• 20-WIN SEASON: At 23-2, ARIZONA has posted its fourth straight 20-win season, the 25th in the last 27 years, and 35th overall. . . UCLA picked up its 20th win Saturday over Utah. For the Bruins, it’s their 20th 20-win season over the last 25 years, and the program’s 48th overall. . . Looking to reach 20 wins with their next victory are ARIZONA STATE and COLORADO. It would be ASU’s fifth such season in the last seven years, and 14th overall. For the Buffs, it would be their fourth consecutive 20-win season, and eighth overall.
