    TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Loren Woods shook off a tough shooting performance in the first half to score 22 points, grab 11 rebounds and block five shots Saturday night as second-ranked Arizona survived another homecourt scare 69-62 over Washington.

    Michael Wright had 16 points and 12 rebounds for the Wildcats.

    Coach Lute Olson benched Arizona's starting freshmen guards Jason Gardner and Gilbert Arenas for the first 8 1/2 minutes for being late to Thursday's practice. Gardner scored 15 and Arenas 10 off the bench.

    Chris Walcott and Senque Carey scored 16 apiece for Washington, which shot just 33 percent from the field. Arizona shot 43 percent, but warmed up to 59 percent in the second half.

    The Huskies' Deon Luton, 0-for-10 from the field in the first half, scored all 10 of his points in the second but made just three of 19 shots.
