TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Salim Stoudamire took Stanford's recent success in Tucson personally.
The senior guard, who was 2-5 against Stanford before Saturday, had 20 of his 26 points in the second half of No. 14 Arizona's 90-72 victory over the Cardinal.
``They have beaten me the three previous times (at home),'' Stoudamire said. ``I told (Chris) Hernandez I had to get him sometime. It feels great. I want to go out and party.''
Frye also tied his season high with four blocks, leading a strong defensive effort that lifted the Wildcats (19-4, 9-2 Pac-10) to their 16th win in 18 games and earned coach Lute Olson his 299th conference win - second only to John Wooden's 304.
``It was by far the best back-to-back games that we have had all year,'' Olson said. ``I think Stanford had difficulty scoring and getting good looks.''
The Wildcats beat California 97-76 on Thursday, coming back strong after a 70-63 loss to Washington State - their first home loss in 18 years to a team with a losing record.
``Right now, we're trying to stay consistent,'' said Frye, who has scored in double figures 14 consecutive games. ``Two games is good; how about three? How about four? I would be fooling myself if I said this was going to make or break our season, but this is a good step forward.''
Dan Grunfeld had 23 points for the Cardinal, Hernandez scored 13 and Matt Haryasz had 12 before fouling out.
The Cardinal (12-9, 6-5) had beaten Arizona their last four trips to McKale Center and won their last three against the Wildcats overall.
``The bottom line is they were really, really good,'' Stanford coach Trent Johnson said. ``They had some guys coming out today with a lot of energy. They made some shots early, got some separation and we had to play from behind, which isn't what we do best.''
Stoudamire, who was 5-of-9 on 3-pointers, came out of the game after his three-point play lifted Arizona to an 88-66 lead with 2:16 left.
The Wildcats began the second half with an eight-point lead and never let Stanford get closer.
Frye found room underneath for a layup with 15:04 left for a 51-38 lead, matching Arizona's biggest of the first half, and added a three-point play 36 seconds later for a 54-40 lead.
Then Stoudamire scored seven points in a 2:56 span, sending the Wildcats to a 73-53 lead with 8:40 remaining and making up for the absence of Frye, who picked up his fourth foul with 11:16 left.
Arizona used an 11-2 surge in the first half to open up a close game.
Radenovic made a layup with 7:49 remaining to start the run, and Frye completed it with another layup after a spin move in the lane, giving the Wildcats a 33-21 lead with 5:13 to go.
Adams turned a steal into a layup during the spurt and did the same with 1:39 left to open a 40-27 lead.
But in the final 21 seconds, Hernandez made a 3-pointer and Jason Haas stole the ball at midcourt and sank a buzzer-beating layup to get the Cardinal within 42-34 at halftime.
``It was neck-and-neck for a while in the beginning,'' Grunfeld said. ``They got some good shots. That's the way the game goes - when you make some 3s, you get some momentum.''
