NACOGDOCHES, TX -

The Wildcats held a two-point lead at halftime, but couldn't quite hold on, as Arizona fell to Stephen F. Austin, 72-60, Saturday evening inside the William R. Johnson Coliseum, snapping what was a season-high four-game win streak.

Senior guard Candice Warthen poured in a team-best 16 points, including scoring 12 in the second half, while LaBrittney Jones nearly recorded a double-double, putting in 10 points and grabbing a team-high nine rebounds, while recording a blocked shot. Both Warthen and Jones lead the team in double-figure scoring outings this season with six each.

Freshman guard Charise Holloway contributed eight points, three rebounds, and two steals off the bench, while sophomore forward Dejza James chipped in with five points, six rebounds, and one steal in just 12 minutes of action.

Arizona (6-4) won the battle of the benches for the sixth time this season, outscoring the SFA (6-4) reserves 20-13.

The Wildcats fell behind 18-11 with 7:56 remaining in the first half, but launched a mini 6-0 run to come within 18-17 with 6:27 left after Warthen stole the ball and took it all the way back the other way for the layup.

Arizona eventually outscored the Ladyjacks 14-5 over the final eight minutes of the half to take a 25-23 advantage into the intermission, as the Wildcats were able to score 10 points directly off of 10 forced turnovers.

Jones quickly extended Arizona's lead to 27-23 out of the break after knocking down a mid-range jumper on UA's opening possession of the second half, but SFA was able to catch fire from the field, knocking down 15-of-28 second half field goals for 53.6 percent.

SFA held a lead as high as 59-42 with 4:06 remaining in the contest. Arizona battled back to eventually cut the deficit back down to single digits, but time eventually ran out on the Wildcat rally.

The Wildcats will return home and conclude the non-conference slate, as they'll take on Tennessee Martin on Dec. 29 at 7 pm MST before heading into the new year and Pac-12 play.
