SEATTLE -Freshman Chase Budinger scored 23 points and Marcus Williams and Jawaan McClellan each scored 22 to lead No. 7 Arizona to its 12th consecutive victory, 96-87 over No. 24 Washington on Thursday night.

McClellan tied a career high and Mustafa Shakur added 21 points for Arizona (12-1, 3-0 Pac-10). The Wildcats are on their longest winning streak since they won 19 in a row in 1998 before losing in the NCAA regional finals to Utah.

Quincy Pondexter, benched for the first time in his collegiate career after 13 starts, matched his career high with 25 points for Washington (10-4, 0-3), which lost its third straight. He had scored 22 points in his three previous games combined.

Arizona won for just the third time in its last nine games against Washington. The Huskies had won their last seven home games against ranked opponents.

McClellan's fourth 3-pointer of the game gave Arizona a 70-69 lead with 11:38 left. After Ryan Appleby briefly gave Washington the lead back at 77-76 with a runner and pulled the Huskies within 87-86 with a fadeaway at the shot clock buzzer, McClellan responded with another 3. Arizona led 90-86 with 3:37 remaining.

Washington went the final 4:25 without a field goal. Appleby missed a wide-open 3 with 1:35 left that could have cut the Wildcats' six-point lead in half.
