PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) - Arizona's Joy Hollingsworth sank 5 of 10 3-pointers and scored 20 points Thursday to lead the Wildcats (8-16 overall; 2-10 Pac-10) to a 55-51 victory over Washington State (5-17 overall; 1-11 Pac-10).
Jessica Arnold added 13 points for the Wildcats, who snapped a six-game losing streak.
The Wildcats made a season-low 29 percent from the field, while Washington State shot 45 percent. Arizona, however, had a 21-7 advantage in offensive rebounds.
Hollingsworth, a native of Seattle, Wash., tied her career high for 3-pointers made and tied her season high for 3-pointers attempted. Arizona led 26-24 at the half after trailing most of the way.
The Cougars led by three points or less most of the second half. Stotler forged the seventh tie of the second half when she hit a jump shot with 1:41 left. Amina Njonkou, one of three Wildcats from Cameroon, scored on a layup with 1:06 to go to give Arizona a 53-51 lead.
As a team, WSU recorded six blocks, led by Ebonee Coates' six, while Arizona did not record any. The Cougars shot 71 percent from the free throw line.
Washington State returns to action Saturday and take on the Arizona State Sun Devils, ranked No. 12 nationally, at 2:00 p.m. at WSU's Beasley Coliseum.
