TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Derrick Williams scored 22 points and Arizona defeated UCLA 85-74 on Thursday night to take sole possession of second place in the Pac-10 Conference.
The Wildcats (17-4, 6-2) shot 52 percent from the field while the Bruins shot 41.4 percent.
Reeves Nelson finished with a game-high 24 points on 10-of-12 shooting and added 10 rebounds for the Bruins (13-7, 5-3), but he fouled out with 2:58 remaining. He started the game despite being questionable because of an ankle injury.
The Wildcats led by as many as 18 points in the second half.
UCLA (13-7, 5-3) made 2 of 15 3-pointers while Arizona went 6 of 10 from beyond the arc.
Arizona improved to 12-0 at home this season. The Wildcats snapped UCLA's four-game winning streak.
