TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Reshea Bristol and Felecity Willis each scored 17 points as No. 23 Arizona snapped a two-game losing streak with a 72-61 victory over Arizona State on Saturday night.

The victory moved Arizona to 10-4 in the Pacific-10 Conference and 21-5 overall. Arizona State, which has lost three straight, fell to 7-7 in the Pac-10 and 13-11 overall. It was the 14th straight time Arizona has beaten the Sun Devils.

Rachel Holt led Arizona State with 20 points. Tatum Brown added 11 points for Arizona.

Arizona State led 28-27 at halftime, in part because it held Wildcats center Tatum Brown to two points. The Wildcats were able to get the ball inside to their center Brown in the second half.

The Sun Devils, who lost for just the second time at home this season, trailed 58-54 with 4:17 remaining. Arizona then went on an 8-2 run to pull away. Bristol had two baskets during the run.

Arizona State tried to get back into the game late with 3-pointers but failed miserably. The Sun Devils made just 5 of 17 3-point attempts in the game. The Sun Devils also had trouble holding onto the ball. Arizona made 17 steals.

Arizona won the first meeting with Arizona State 60-58 at home.
