The cheerleader was escorted out of the game by security.

No question, the rivalry in the desert has heated up.

Washington State: The Cougars get a much needed win for a team on the ropes. "Miller said. ".So for us, you have to be careful.

Thursday's meeting is the 234th installment in the all-time series between Arizona and Arizona State, which dates back to 1913.

Dusan Ristic has scored ten or more points in each of his last nine games, which is the longest such streak of his career.

Arizona State's leading scorer, senior guard Tra Holder, will also be motivated considering he has not beaten the Wildcats since his freshman year. "To exert all that energy to come all the way back, that's why we came up short". ASU was the first college team Arizona ever faced on December 13, 1913 after playing primarily YMCA's and Tucson High School alumni teams nine years prior.

Arizona had rebounded from a dismal trip to the Bahamas and was playing well.

The sequel rocked - nearly literally.

The Wildcats were ready for them, opening on an 11-2 run and making 10 of their first 12 shots to build a 28-11 lead that eventually stretched to 18.

ASU used a 31-6 run spanning the first and second halves to take a seven-point lead, 46-39, just three minutes into the second half.

A University of Arizona cheerleader was ejected for heckling an Arizona State player during Thursday night's Pac-12 game in Tempe. The way in which Wisconsin won the game wasn't pretty, with both teams going through lengthy scoring droughts at various points, but they managed to gut out the result.

Defensively, Arizona State yields 74.8 points per game agains the opposing teams. The Wildcats outscored ASU 14-7 in the final four minutes to seal the win, their third straight win in Tempe and their second over ASU this season.

Arizona State went 7 of 12 on free throws, including 1 of 6 in the second half. "We're trapping with somebody who is 6-(foot)-5, 6-(foot)-4 so he gets to see right over us".

Arizona plays at Oregon State next Thursday.
