TUCSON, AZ - Senior guard Candice Warthen led the Wildcats in scoring for the ninth time this season, while junior guard Keyandra Cannon shot 50 percent from the field, but it wasn't enough, as Arizona fell to No. 18 Arizona State, 88-41, Thursday night at McKale Center.
The 47-point victory was the highest margin ever for the Sun Devils in their series with the rival Wildcats. Katie Hempen and Promise Amukamara led ASU with 16 points each as all Sun Devils scored in the game.
Warthen scored 13 points on 5-of-12 shooting, while grabbing three rebounds.
Cannon notched her third double-digit scoring performance of the season, as she recorded 10 points. Arizona has now recorded two or more double-digit scorers in 11 of its last 12 games.
Senior forward Alli Gloyd nearly had herself a double-double, as she poured in seven points, going a perfect 3-of-3 from the field, while pulling down a game-high eight rebounds.
Arizona (7-7, 0-3 Pac-12) forced Arizona State (14-1, 3-0 Pac-12) into 15 turnovers, while the Cats saw eight different players score in the game.
The Wildcats will get a shot at redemption, as they'll take on the Sun Devils for the second time in three days, Saturday at 6 pm MST in Tempe. The game can be seen on the Pac-12 Networks and can be heard on KTUC 1400 AM.
